Sandymount Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
I was told there is not enough time in the schedule for the students to wash their hands before lunch as well as any time during the day
I've only had great experiences. The school has a lot of activities for the entire family. The PTA is fantastic at raising money for the school and keeps the fundraisers fun, interesting and varied. My son's teacher have been engaging, helpful and my son finds them very approachable. Mr. Laughlin ("Mr. L") left after the school year to another school closer to home (PA). He will be missed! Ms. Polhaus was great in helping my son understand that 1 bad test score doesn't define him. Her words and guidance restored his confidence. Mrs. Dietzel (2nd grade) welcomed my son mid-year and helped him transition with no concern at all.
Excellent community school, most supportive and active PTA I have ever seen. Every student gets a book from the PTA on their birthday---did that happen at your school when you were growing up?
All three of my children have attended Sandymount Elementary. I currently have two children there and the teachers and staff are amazing! I love that the teachers that taught my oldest child will teach or have already taught my other two children. I am glad the teachers stay a long time and consider Sandymount their home. I also volunteer at Sandymount at least once a week so I witness the daily "goings on". I see a lot of consistency across the board both academically and with the current administration. I can see where the front office staff may be perceived as surly but front entrance procedures have changed a lot over the past few years. It is their job to keep our kids safe and to make sure that everyone that enters that building has the proper credentials and is supposed to be there. Their job is not an easy one and I'm glad that they do it well. Once you get to know them and they get to know you, they are very pleasant. I am a very proud parent to some wonderful Sandymount students!
My child has been attending Sandymount for two years. After Kindergarten, I really hoped they would flourish with a teacher who was more compassionate and patient; but to no avail. The front office is less than friendly, they won't even look at you when you walk in. The PTA isn't very welcoming either. You would think a group as desired for membership as the PTA, they would be welcoming in their meetings - not "cliquey" and seeming so annoyed at their "duty". The Principal was present, and never once introduced herself or talked. After dealing with a transportation issue, the Principal did take care of the situation, however, it was very robotic like. When I was in school, my teachers were fun, engaging, and always friendly. I know everyone is different and has different tactics, but you are teaching elementary school kids - Be Happy! Engage them! Feed into their imagination! I am really discouraged and hope their elementary experience is the great memories I remember!
