    "We are very happy with Frontier Valley. My child comes home very happy and excited about something that was learned that day. The teachers we have had have all been great. The academic curriculum seems very good. Also, my child comes home with great art projects and very excited about different experiments they did in science. We would highly recommend this school."

    "Canterberry is a great neighborhood to live in, but if you are looking for a great elementary school, you may want to expand your search. With high teacher to student ratios (1:35) in many classes, sub-par curriculum, lack of character/morals training, and an overall lack of expecting excellence were issues that caused us to remove our children from this school. We even watched as kids are allowed to use calculators for math tests. Really? Walk the halls of this lovely school and you see a ton of art projects proudly displayed but very little proof that children are being taught how to write, form intelligent arguments, or stretch their intellect beyond the basics the state requires. It's a great place if you just want an all-day PK-5 government funded childcare service so you can go to work. The staff are all nice people and there certainly are exceptions, but overall you should expect your child will not be very challenged and will fall behind their peers are truly great schools. I hope this school will reverse course and work towards greatness. Every child deserves the best."

    "I am very disappointed at the lack of communication by both the administration as well as the teachers. The web site is not kept up to date and there appears to be no standards for content on the site. As far as academics go I'm very concerned that my child is not getting the appropriate curriculum for his grade and that if we switch schools he would be behind other students. I am seriously considering other educational options."

    "While we are only through the first half of my daughter's kindergarten year I am less than impressed with the ability of the curriculum to keep her challenged. At this point in the year the books brought home are less challenging than what she reads by herself at home and she performs simple arithmetic at home while only counting in class. It is frustrating to see her so bored in one of the strongest school districts in the state and at one of the stronger schools in that district. For first grade, we are strongly considering moving her to a different school with a more advanced curriculum and integrated foreign languages. I truly believe that the teachers and staff care for the students. I appreciate that her teacher has made an effort to keep her, and a couple other children, engaged by providing more difficult material than what is given to the rest of the class. I have other problems with the district and the number of teacher in-service or professional development days which happen at least once a month."

    "We recently moved from another school to Frontier Valley Elementary. We have 6 Elementary aged children that attend FVE, and we couldn't be happier with the climate and standard of excellence we are seeing at our new school. Every one of my childrens teachers has taken the time to make them feel welcome and loved from the start we could feel a fabulous difference at FVE! We have been surprised at the personal attention, high standard of education and individual care each of our children have recieved from FVE's amazing teachers, staff and it's great principal Mr Muma. We feel that we have been treated so well that we are sure our school deserves to be named 'America's Favorite'!!!"
