    "My son attended this school for three years and is now behind grade level in all subjects (along with 70% of his classmates). We have been extremely disappointed with this school and have opted to explore other option for our son. Less then half the students at this school are proficient in reading and math. I tried to contact his teachers regarding my sons academics and got no response. I tried to make an appointment to speak with the principal but he was "busy". My son's teacher told me that she didn't respond because she was "overwhelmed" which is not something we wanted to hear. She indicated to us by showing us a classroom spreadsheet that only two students in her class could count money and most were not at grade level in reading. This school is a failing school that has too many kids to monitor and not enough time to talk to parents. If you care at all about your child succeeding in life I would highly recommend doing anything to avoid this school."

    "My son attends the dual language Kindergarten at Encanto and loves it! His teachers (Ms H and Mrs Endres) are superb. They are always available over email/phone in case parents want to discuss about child's progress. Very proactive and & encourage parent involvement...Academically, I feel this is a strong school atleast for kindergarten and gives homework. Homework comes weekly so I think its should not bother much. Its dual language program is the best part of the school."

    "My son attended the Kindergarten dual language program last year, and it was overall a very positive experience. Academically, I feel this is a strong school, though perhaps a bit too much rote homework for K. The principal and the staff at this school truly have the best interests of the kids in mind at all times. The front office staff is absolutely wonderful and patient in answering questions and walking new parents through procedures. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that I felt there was some bullying that goes on at the school, especially on the playground, that should have been addressed more directly. The school needs to send a stronger message of inclusion of diversity and intolerance for bullying."

    "My son is in third grade and is constantly being bullied by much older students as they do not have adequate supervision on the yard. When I approached the office about the incidents they (office staff) told me that was impossible as they did not think it could happen. They then proceeded to tell me that I couldn't get an "appointment" to speak with anyone regarding my child. I do not feel that children are cared for or safe at this school. I have emailed the teacher about various academic things more then four times with absolutely no response or apologies . This school needs better leadership and better teachers. I would not send your child here unless you have no other choice. Even with all their so called "intervention programs" and extra money received from the state they still rank the lowest in the nation. I will be looking for a better option immediately for my child."

    "My daughter has attended Encanto since Kindergarten, and she is now in 3rd grade. I love the face that Encanto is early education focused - it is PK-3rd grade, The students start 4th grade at Clarendon School (next to Encanto). My daughter is in the Dual Language Program that Encanto offers (as well as other schools in the Osborn District), which I would like to see more schools offer. I love the diverse student body at Encanto & the teachers interaction with all students. The teachers have always been wonderful & encourage parent involvement - they all have had an open door policy. I have never had a problem getting a hold of any teacher or staff member whether by visit, phone or email. I would give Encanto 5 stars except for 2 things: one is the fact that it is so hard to get into the afterschool daycare program because it fills up so fast - you have to try months in advance & your lucky if you get a spot, Not schools fault, just irritating. The only issue I have was once when my child was sent to nurse for heat exhaustion & I never got a phone call. Although she wasn't sent home, I would have preferred a call. For the purposes of education/learning I give Encanto 5 stars!"
