    "Teller is a decent school that has been working to improve test scores and modernize itself. There has recently been a lot of teacher turn-over which appears to be positive but since it seems the majority of the teachers are new this year, stability has yet to be proven. The principal seems more interested in backing district decisions then parent partnership/communication and could use additional "people skills"."

    "Teller Elementary is a wonderful community school. I choose the word community over neighborhood because we do have families that choice in. That combined with the neighborhood families creates a wonderful environment for my children. We are in our 4th year at Teller, which began with the ECE program, and the experience gets better and better. In addition to the great leadership of Principal Downs, Teller is blessed with amazing teachers, including full time art, drama/music and PE teachers. As well as strong after school programs. If you are interested in Teller, I encourage you to take a tour to see the school and met the teachers/staff, come to a PTA meeting to chat with parents, and attend one of our events. You will not be disappointed.."

    "Overall Teller is a good school, although it would be nice if they replaced the secretary (Dee Faust)with someone who has better communication skills."

    "There are teachers at this school, who don't know how to teach a child with disabilities. I walked into his special ed class, Everyone was writing sentences but my child. My child was drawing pics. The teacher was at her desk. Our child should be working in 6th grade, not kindergarten again. I may have to pull our child out of Teller, who has teachers who don't know how to teach our child. Since I can't give a zero they will only get 1star.Teachersneed to go back to school and learn how to teach special ed,and the regular ed teachers also."

    "My child learned more as a 4 year old in an out of state school than she learned in both 1st and 2nd grade at this school. The sad part is that the rest of the DPS school system is just as sad and trying to choice her in at a better school is near impossible. I spend my time off trying to make up for the lack of education they are providing. The only saving grace this place has is the band, drama and choir teacher, along with the office staff. I only pray my child's teacher next spring is better than this years teacher."
