    "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."

    "I am very happy with the school and the way it is being run. I was worried about sending my daughter here but she is now in 1st grade and is doing very well. I have been happy with the teachers she has had so far. My only complaint is the lack of communication from the specialty teachers. But each time I had addressed that with the teacher, but don't feel I should have to have been the one to reach out. But it's my daughter and I will do what is needed to help her grow in anyway that she needs. My biggest concern with the school is the lunch menu. I really hope they will do something about that soon. It's not the healthiest I've seen. I also am glad they have the before school breakfast program. It so helps us parents who work. It's sad that they had to cut down on the arts/phys ed classes in order to concentrate more on the academic and tested type classes. I think the education community should think about making the school day a little longer and allowing the kids the arts/culture classes that they enjoy. Just glad the school is doin well and it's rating has increased. Overall I am happy with the school."

    "I am a parent who does not know good English and with the help of google will show my anger to the director of this school. My son has made school here, but never am not satisfied. before my son came to this school was high and exemplary results we bring. as the new director came this change because it's always managed to condemn as not to like school. condemn only this and the next child if left free this .. it only quarrel with it much more condemning is not like school. but we did not know where to talk about because they did not know English. has a year that is gone and I am satisfied with the school that has now been very polite and higher grades .. thanks god that was left out there ...I don` t like ...rey mother"
