    "I can't say enough about our amazing school. We have an excellent theater, music, art and physical education program. The teachers and staff are phenomenal, as well as the family involvement is beyond amazing. We are so lucky to be a part of this community. We have a school garden and the produce is served in the cafeteria. Other special things about our school is the back pack program, sending food home on Friday's to families in need. The Penny Harvest teaches our kids to be young philanthropists and donate pennies collected to organizations of their choice. We have a wide range of enrichment programs including Math rocks, knitting, cooking classes, fashion classes, hip hop, ballet, gymnastics, soccer, etc. Overall, I feel privileged to send my two kids to this great school!!"

    "My 3 children attend(ed) this school. We have nothing but positive things to say. The three of them have different learning styles. Each of their needs have been met. Love all of the staff and teachers."

    "Teller Elementary is a wonderful community based school that provides a good education and a diverse student body. Our music department led by Jennifer Bartos is amazing and I love that my children go to a school where the arts are appreciated and celebrated. Ms. Down's, the principal, attends all PTA meetings and makes herself available for parents as well. Anytime there has been a situation at Teller, Ms. Down's has made every effort to be involved and rectify the situation. There has been teacher turnover in recent years, but in my opinion, that has been necessary to create a stronger teacher community and keep Teller moving forward. My son has since graduated from Teller and was fully prepared for the rigorous academics of his chartered middle school. I am confident that my two children who still attend Teller will be amply prepared as well."

    "Teller has had a lot of struggles in the past years but has a devoted and committed community of teachers, parents, and students that keep striving to make the school better and better. It is evident with rising test scores, enrollment and parent satisfaction."

    "I have been a Teller parent for quite sometime now so I have seen the shift with the newest principal... Before she was head of the school it was like a family home community. The kids were happy, bullying was at it's lowest and my students were excelling in their studies! My oldest even shifted into GT during her 4th grade year! Ever since her take over - there has been MULTIPLE dangerous bullying situations...one that I didn't even know about until the kid in my kids class was kicked out of the school and I had come to find out that she was keeping quiet (my student) about the situation because she was always ignored and told to deal with it because in sixth grade there would be worse. Either get involved at this school and try to change it or DON'T attend Teller unless you want your child to be yelled at, ignored, bullied and given an education that's only been going down for two years and that's state results and self opinion so you decide."
