    "Primrose Elementary is a gem tucked away in Somers, NY. A good facility but, thanks to an outstanding professional staff, a great school. The K-2 set-up is a blessing. It has given my son time - time to be himself without the pressure of older kids and older behavior. The teachers have been professional, exacting but nurturing. My son has been challenged in the best sense. The variety of approaches gives every learner a way in. His reading and math skills were well established by first grade. By second grade, he has been reading 4th and 5th grade level chapter books, made possible by flexible observant teachers. Parental involvement is solid. Highest praise for the leadership. Engaged, committed and available. The logistics of the schools run smoothly, day in, day out, with a friendly helpful office. The principal and asst. principal are excellent, tireless in their efforts to make the school work for the children who attend it - not the other way around. Introduction of Common Core has not been easy for anyone. Their leadership has been essential to its successful introduction. We looked at private schools that did not match up to Primrose. Lucky us"

    "I agree with the review back in 2009. If your child is middle of the road or compliant then they likely will do well at Primrose. The problem is educators are evaluated on their students succeeding so students who are not doing well will sometimes be moved around or told that perhaps primrose is not a good fit. I personally find the special ed teachers lacking compared to some of the special ed teachers in surrounding districts BUT I find the resources and amount of help a child can receive with various therapies to be stellar at Primrose. I don't get the feeling some of the special ed teachers know how to deal with some of the unique needs of some of the students and none seem up to the challenge. However, SIS and the high school seem to have excellent reputations in dealing with students who are very challenging. In a nutshell if your child is middle of the road, they'll thrive here. If not, it's a coin toss."

    "My daughter is a first grader at Primrose. She is having some learning difficulties and I must say that Primrose is handling it quite well. They have created an ISP (Instructional Support Plan) for my daughter which has placed her in smaller groups so she doesn't feel lost. She is also in the Reading Recovery program which includes one-on-one time for 30 minutes a day, everyday. I see a big improvement. Her teacher is also very involved and very attentive to my daughter's needs. She emails me with updates and seems to genuinely care about her progress. If you think your child has some difficulty learning, speak up!! The help is there if your child neeeds it!"

    "The Kindegarten Program at Primrose was excellent. My son had Mrs. Maria French and by January he was reading books from cover to cover and comprehending and having discussions with us. Also the school really made his interest in Math grow. He likes to add and subtract and for a 5 year old I think this is great. The enthusiasm and excellent classroom skills of Mrs. French and the teaching assistant Mrs. Tomasullo have given our son the greatest education start. So far we are pleased with Primrose Elementary and we look forward to a great 1st grade. Please keep in mind that its a parents responsibility to reinforce what the children learn throughout the day whether its after school, early evenings or weekends. Its your childs future, work with them!"

    "I have three children in Somers schools. The teachers - with one or two exceptions - have been outstanding. I do agree that students with any special needs are not necessarily given the attention they may need. I would also say that this is a school district not taking the dual working parents into account."
