If you & your child/children enjoy changing elementary schools every other year then this is the district for you. These elementary schools housing only 2 grades each are all overcrowded! Teachers aren't miracle workers they can only work with what they're dealt..Not mention lack of pay raises for them in at least 5 yrs according to an individual in the city council. I have 3 children who left Dearborn school district with great scores in all state testing to moving to this district..my 3 kids in Dearborn heights district currently with a large decrease in scoring & lack of motivation to do homework, to not even wanting to go school some days..its sad. Apparently, there is no say in anything relating to the school district or the way its ran by parents, or the actual tax payers (homeowners,actual city residents) so i am looking to send my children elsewhere.

WORST SCHOOL EVER . Testing reveals only 21% of students above state standard level. Principal very monotone, and unprofessional. Core curriculum as listed on the district website is not being followed. There is NO accountability at this school. If your child needs extra help don't expect it here. 31 students per classroom.

We have had 5 children that attended Polk. We moved to the district because the school system had good marks overall. I was happy in our first year with the leadership and the teachers. The teachers are the shining stars here, but they have little guidance and support from the principal. After that first year it rolled downhill fast. Overcrowded due to school of choice, disorganized and a serious lack in the administrations leadership qualities. Two of my children were special needs students who were neglected by the district and I spent many days pushing the district to help them. They were not cooperative beyond rhetoric. Finally we left the area for a school system that has not only welcomed our children but is more than prepared and willing to see to their success -VanDyke Public Schools in Warren. Now our children are happy to go to school again and are making the grade with the structural support, opportunities and advancements they deserve. If you have a choice don't make it Polk Elementary.

I really like the teachers, each year it seems as though they go out of their way to help my son. For that I am extreamly greatful. Each year my sons grades improve, I attribute that to the teachers. I think Ms. B is such a help in the office for us parents, she goes that extra mile for me anyway.

This school has too many children in the classrooms and not enough more individual attention especially to the 1st grade and K.We are taking our children out and putting them in a charter school that has higher academic standards and smaller classrooms and more individual attention and more parent involvement. D#7 schools have changed immensely over the years.
