School Reviews

We chose to open enroll both our children at Conley Elementary. My older child was there under Dr. Walters who builds a great foundation for our current principal Mrs. Shore to build upon. This is her first year here so I don't know her that well yet, but she has made a great first impression. She is communicative, organized and clearly passionate about her students and school. My son is thriving academically and socially. The campus is on a large site right by district headquarters and district central kitchen. I LOVE all the big trees, grass and space on campus.

We have many options for schools here in Chandler to choose from. However, I have chosen to send my son to Conley Elementary since kinder (now in 2nd grade). I will be sending my daughter to Conley for kinder next year as well. Conley has a fantastic staff. They have very caring and intelligent teachers. All are very dedicated to each and every student. They offer STEAM/STEM curriculum and they stress the importance of diversity and they promote inclusiveness. They also offer (or at least let the families know about) different clubs/activities that are available at Conley or surrounding campus''. (Running clubs, soccer, dance..etc). The class sizes are okay (25+). The teachers do a great job accommodating.
