    "This school is an awesome school. My child has attended since 1st grade and this is her last year. It saddens me to know that we will soon be leaving. It also frustrates me greatly, when I hear people talk so negatively about this school. Melinda Shinn was promoted to Assistant Principal this year, and with her knowledge of our student base, we can't help but keep going anywhere but up. Kim Nance, our Librarian, is one of the best librarians I have ever met. Her goal is to get your child to read and to excel in reading!! Marsha Lippe is one of our counselors and is wonderful with the little ones. Don't be afraid to have your child attend this school. It really is an AWESOME SCHOOL."

    "I have 3 children who attend Startzville Elementary. I have seen this school improve 100% over the last 2 years. My children are thriving with the academic programs and extra curricular activities offered. If ever I have had a problem it has been addressed and corrected if necessary. No school is perfect, but I can definitely say that the teachers and principal care about these students and do whatever they can to encourage success and good character. I look forward to the new test scores to be published so all of their hard work can be acknowledged. I know that a lot of people do not like the emphasis on the testing. The public schools have no choice but to get the students prepared to take the tests. If a parent is not happy with how things are going for their child let the school know."

    "I can't understand why all these parents think this is such a great school. Sure there are programs that make the school appear progressive (Wii Fitness Lab, Garden Center - which my son was excited about however the school dropped the ball and wouldn't let the kids do anything because someone from the Master Gardeners never showed up), but this is all just fluff! Academically, students here are suffering, just look at the standardized test scores. The teachers spend so much time (far too much in my opinion) trying to prepare students for these tests and they still do extremely poorly. My son has been here 2-5th grade and at first the school seemed good, but I think it's because it's new and they have all this technology and the "fluff" that gives the appearance of a good school, but they're not making our kids smarter. I feel my son is extremely unprepared for middle school and his teachers don't seem concerned in the least. At the beginning of the school year parents provide all school supplies for the class, not just your child and (in 5th grade) students are made to buy the supplies back with school $. The "good" supplies parents buy - the teachers keep those for their use."

    "We miss this school so much ! I have a 10 year old, 8 year old twins, and a 7 year old and this was such a positive school. My children were never bullied here unlike the school we currently attend. An awesome parent resource center and very caring Teachers."
