    "Demarest starts with a wonderful principal and librarian and I find that they set the tone for the school and set high expectations of the teachers. Mrs. Todaro is very involved in the lives of the kids in her school and is a dedicated principal. I have been consistently happy with the teachers my two children have had. We have been in the school for 6 years. The downside here is the language program, but this is a Bloomfield-wide issue. Rosetta Stone does not replace a human being. The music program is good - especially the instruments. The new voice teacher is a little high-strung. I used the aftercare for my kids when they were young and it was okay. After 3rd grade it was not as interesting for my children. The pre-school breakfast is great for working parents. I can't judge the lunch food since I pack my kids' lunches. I would highly recommend this school."

    "If you're looking for an amazing Principal and staff,well look no further. This is my daughters last year and at this point I'm just grateful she was able to attend such a prestigious school. Mrs. Todero and her teachers is the reason why this school gets a 5star rating from me."

    "My daughter has been in Demarest Elementary for five years now, I have found her teachers to be very involved with their students, concerned with their progress, and willing to push them in the right direction. I feel comfortable with the overall curriculum. The Principal, Mrs. Todaro, appears to care very much about the direction of the school, bullying is not tolerated here at all. It would have been nice for this school to have been able to keep their Spanish teacher rather then utilize Rosetta Stone. I believe interaction with an actual teacher to be the best form of instruction. I also wish there were more options with regard to their the Music program (i.e. the school doesn't provide piano instruction as an option, etc.). Also, the aftercare program, which is conveniently located in the basement, courtesy of the YMCA, is rather expensive and doesn't seem to provide the structured-extra curricular activities a parent would expect - - overall it seems to be a good school with good teachers and a caring environment."

    "My daughter attended Demarest for 7 years (K-6). We loved this school. The teachers and staff are open to communication and very responsive. Everyone involved at this school creates a warm, inviting atmosphere. Parental involvement is very high."

    "My son has studied for 2 years at Demarest. Overall it is a good school. The teachers are doing their best with what they have. The downsides are that the music teacher has no classroom. There is no Spanish teacher due to the budget cuts, kids have to watch movies in Spanish with no explanation. Breakfast and lunch programs are terrible, food is nasty. Plan to pack your own food every day. Aftercare is pretty bad, held by YMCA. Looks like most councellors have just finished an elementary school themselves! No discipline there. It is a zoo. But it is not Demarest's fault, not sure who chooses an aftercare provider. As far as academics go, I do not have any complaints."
