Douglas MacArthur Elementary School Reviews

1 review
I can’t praise DME enough. This school really is amazing and it’s due to the staff there. The Principle(Ms Buchko) is a great listener & great with all of the students. She’s never too busy to help anyone in need. The secretaries will smile when you walk in and The custodian (Mike), I’ve seen this man put his mop down to talk to a student who was having a rough day,he asked if students wanted to help him paint a backdrop for last years fifth grade musical using his own paint &recycled boards.He also has games during lunch to help 1 graders learn their spelling words.They have a great counselor that helps students cope with their emotions. My son has benefited from Mrs Bellamy’s strategies. For being under tremendous pressure the teachers are tops & truly love their students & want them to succeed. Communications are always immediate and not a week later.
