8/27/2012parentStudent to teacher ratio is too high which is resulting in the motivated children being "dumbed down". Pick up and drop off times are a catastrophe - not enough reasonable parking, rude crossing gaurds, ignorant teachers acting as traffic controllers - completely unorganized. Student sign out is un-secure. This school is a mess.
7/13/2012parentMy daughter has attended this school since 2nd grade currently heading to 6th grade, and I love it! The teachers and staff are great! My son is about to start his first year as well!
11/4/2011parentThis is our first year here but we are very happy so far. My daughter is in the Cambridge Academy program and it is wonderful! The teachers are awesome and very engaging. In addition, I don't see tons of useless homework coming home which is sometimes piled on "advanced" kids. The front office staff is really friendly too. Don't know much about the principal though...
1/7/2010parentMy husband and I are pleased with marley park. This is my son's 2nd year there. He had an awesome 3rd grade teacher (Mrs. Tarelton) and now has another awesome teacher in 4th grade (Mrs. Sinex) My son has had excelent instruction from his teachers and he is very happy there. Mr. Nevers has been quick to handle any problems that arise and the staff in the front office is friendly. My child has made many friends ay Marley Park and still checks in with his 3rd grade teacher to say hi.
7/14/2009parentMarley Park is a great school. We are from the Dupage County area of Chicago and would put this school on par with any school there. Our 2nd and 4th grade kids have been challenged and the teachers push each kid at the appropriate level. This is the place to be and the surrounding neighborhood and homes are excellent.
5/21/2009parentComing from CA and thinking our schools were suffering,I have to say I was shocked to find Marley Park to be a great disappointment. Parents of younger children k-5, seem to be satisfied with the teachers, however the middle school grades 6-8, especially 6th are less than desirable. The teachers are overwhelmed, thus putting less time & energy into our kids. Where is the love for teaching? Furthermore, the lack of support from the principal & vice-principal has been apparent from the beginning of the school year. They are missing the big picture. In order to groom our children, they need to create a good, positive environment . The kids aren't allowed to be and act like the 6th,7th, and 8th graders they are. This is a shame. This school used to be excelling, but now performing plus. Wonder why?
4/2/2009parentThe best school my kids have attended,by far. I have 5 students from K-8th.
10/6/2007parentVery high student to teacher ratio. I did not like it being K-8. All kids go in the same entrance at the same time. Little kids are scared walking in the middle of all the older students. We pulled our son out to homeschool, although we would prefer for him to be in school. I am a teacher and have always supported public schools, but moving from the midwest, I was shocked with the number of students in the class, the lack of developmental activities, and the burden upon the school to deal with the growth while trying to cooperate with the district. It seems to me that the principals should have more independence in making decisions for schools, but the district keeps a tight reign. This is not good. This is one of the best schools here, but we were very disappointed.
8/28/2007parentmarley park is a great school. the teachers and staff are very dedicated to the students. the one thing that marley park lacks as many other schools in az do is special classes for the student who just needs alittle extra help. there have been teachers who sacrafice their time here and there to help out but there is not a program that is consistant to tutor kids who need help outside the classroom. having this at marley park would be so wonderful!
5/29/2007parentMarley Park is the best Elementary school in the Surprise area. This area is just developing and teachers want to teach at Marley. The female principal keeps good tight discipline and better than average learning quotas for AZ standards. Parent involvement is high at this Elementary in the area only from what I have seen and heard.
1/24/2007parentGreat School! They always keep parents informed. The academics are fantastic. The staff is friendly and pleasant.
6/15/2006parentThe result is teachers working their tails off with limited support (books, aides, principal & district support.) Magnet School for the district. Very nice campus. Strong PTA. K-8 school (I do not like this but it is a trend in AZ). Strong Third Grade, Sixth Grade, and Kinder Teachers New Principal next year - she is good, I know her! Teachers need more support (aides are no where to be found and pull-out reading and tutoring programs are non-exsistant) Students coming into this school have a variety of backgrounds, many working parents, and some behavioral issues. Teachers and PTA are working hard to build a community of character - lots of work to be done.
6/6/2006parentThis school needs some work when it comes to discipline. Otherwise, it is a good school.
6/6/2006parentThis is a great school but it needs some work.
5/10/2006parentMy children love this school and I love the fact that they are doing so much better then ever before at any other school.
3/25/2006parentVery good school. Very caring and interested teachers. Nice administration and front office staff. It's new so let's see if it last.
12/16/2005parentMy younger child who attends had an excellent fifth grade teacher last year as well as an excellent sixth grade teacher this year. They were both veteran teachers.
9/22/2005parentThis school has a long way to go but then i think everyone knows all of the dysart unified school district has its work cut out for it. It is not keeping up with all the growth in this area. Not too many extra curricular activities and it could use some bully prevention.
