1 review for Jonas E. Salk Elementary School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on March 10, 2009
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • My child is in the 1st grade here at Salk. He is learning far beyond his reading skill level, and his instructor is focused on academics rather then filling the kids time with arts and crafts. He has a quota for his classroom and helps students individually reach that goal at any means neccessary.
