Donnelly Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
Great little school. Everyone is a team in this school. It partners with Barbara Morgan elementary for kids with higher special needs. My special needs child transferred out to Barbara Morgan while my other kiddos attend Donnelly. Bussing was provided since we live in donnelly. My kids have learned so much at both schools and not just academically but also socially and personally. You can feel the united front in the school. Love Donnelly elementary!
Donnelly School is an amazing school where kids learn together. It has a great community feel as a whole. Kindergartners know 5th graders and then fourth graders help first graders. Teachers of every grade are willing to go the extra mile for each individual child's learning. Their learning and safety is their number one concern.
This school is amazing. Despite 60% free and reduced lunch count and a stagnant local economy, DES has amazing academic success unparalleled from any other school in the state. Amazingly, DES competes with all the affluent neighborhoods in the Boise district. Despite this academic success, the kids are snowed out most of the year and do not have adequate means to play when the snow is covering the ground for 3/4 a school year. Thanks for the consideration.
I love this school the attention the teachers can pay to the students of small classes, my child who was in in kindg. last year came home reading, doing math, etc. overall fantastic school!!
I think you are being a little harsh in your rating of Donnelly Elementary School. I don't know how you get your star rating, because according to the standardized tests we do better than many of the larger schools in Boise, and compare well against the charter schools. When the PTO hosts family/community nights, the gym is packed with mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, and local business people. If a teacher needs classroom help, there are always dozens of parents willing to volunteer. Our after school programs have 2-3 times the number of children involved as the near by school that is twice as large. The teachers all respect eachother as well as the students. We could send our children to the larger school 10 miles away that has better playground equipment, but we choose Donnelly Elementary because the staff cares about each child. I really think we deserve 8 stars.
