My son has been at Maryvale since K and we're pretty happy about it. The English program is quite good and kids have plenty of enrichment opportunities if they are performing at the grade level already. Each year my son has been receiving enrichment in math and reading, as part of a small group of students who were already outperforming other kids. The school strongly emphasizes reading, and provides for plenty of time for kids to read during the school day. The library is amazing, too! Our kid reads at least a full grade level above his grade. Yes, this is a minority-majority school, which comes with its shortcomings and bonuses. The teachers we've had so far are professional and constantly improving their competencies, by pursuing graduate degrees or further training. Even while at the holding school building (while the new building is being build, which looks amazing), the school is well equipped.

The French immersion program is the best you can get for your child in the county. The principal and teachers are very hardworking and helpful in developing the potential of your child. The French immersion teacher Mme. Kone deserves a special mention as she works selflessly with students to improve their weaknesses and deficiencies. Overall our experience of sending our kid to this school has been an excellent decision!

The new principal Mrs. Prin is very nice and working hard towards improving lots of things about the school. The teachers here (both of the French Immersion and English) are very competent and work very hard with students to bring out their best. The school definitely needs more involvement of parents in PTA, especially the parents from the English side.

My two daughters are in the English program at Maryvale ES. There are a lot of comments here about how great the French immersion program is, that might lead some parents to infer that the English program is not as good -- all of the teachers at Maryvale are very good, all of them very knowledgeable and very nice. Ms. Adeoye is a great teacher, my younger daughter is learning a lot and also improving academically thanks to her. Ms Rawson is also great, Ms. Sebastian... just to name a few but every teacher my kids have ever had has been great, as well as all of the administrative staff, PTA and in general, all the parents in the neighborhood.

French Immersion program is amazing. The teachers are knowledgeable, innovative and only have the students' best interests at heart. Mme Loomis (1stgrade French) is the champion for growth mindset. It has a big impact on the teaching and learning. Also, I appreciate the reading-only homework policy.
