    "Teachers are accessible. They are knowledgable regarding LD's and how to accommodate them. The Specialists (Music, PE, Library, Art) are some of the best teachers in the district and love what they do. Parent involvement is encouraged."

    "Our family left a private school to attend Derfelt and we have been very happy with that decision...for the most part. What I've learned more than anything is, it's not the school itself, it's the teacher and parent involvement that will make the biggest difference in a child's education. While I'm not super impressed with administration, I have liked the kids teachers this year. That being said, last year was a disaster with a teacher. Whether we stay at this elementary school is a year to year decision. If the current principal is there for next year, it's looking like we won't be."

    "I really like the school I think the teachers are doing a very good job. I like a lot of the interactive activities they have for the children I think the principal really cares about the kids and is doing a very good job, my only complaint would be it seems like there's too many children in a classroom but I'm coming from a place where they had no more than 20 children with a teacher helper. I like the diversity of the kids The classrooms and the school itself is quite new and very well up kept up So let's see how it goes this is my first year here with two children there and I'm very hopeful at this point."

    "We moved to this area three years ago and my daughter was put into Mr. C's 4th grade class. She says it was the BEST year of her elementary education. To this day, she says he made learning fun and exciting. She has told us that he made long division so easy to understand and it has helped her tremendously in math since. She loved his Rugby program too. I have never seen a teacher so dedicated to his students. He genuinely cares about them. He even came to one of her soccer games to show interest in her. We will never forget that. Above and beyond! Mr. Mingo is an incredible leader and presence at that school. He makes sure that children are safe and protected. We had an incident last year where another student was behaving inappropriately towards one of my daughters and Mr. Mingo took immediate, serious action to make sure that it did not happen again. We truly appreciate his care in that matter. I am very pleased with the education my children have received and are receiving at Derfelt. My daughter even got a perfect 500 on her math CRT's while at this school and received a 495/500 on her reading. I'd say they are doing their job and then some."

    "It truly breaks our heart to read such non-sense. Some schools and teachers can careless about their students and/or progress, yet here we not only have a great school, but Mr. C is AMAZING! He not only encourages sportsmanship, but he spent his OWN time promoting Rugby and the BE KIND program, which was beneficial for the kids, but you just can't please everyone. We appreciate you Mr. C, and remember that your hard work and passion shines through. ~Morris and Tiffany Lambert"
