    "I have been impressed by the community spirit of this school. Along with having many teachers who have been teaching here a long time, we have a very active PTO group. When you talk to some of the teachers and leaders they say how they have worked for other school around the area and those chose to come back to Polton."

    "I was a student at Polton 1st grade through 5th grade now going into 7th grade. The students there are awesome. Not many rumors went around and if there was everybody there was smart enough to not believe them and not pass it on. The teachers there are either air-heads or very helpful. My 1st and 3rd grade teacher didn't teach very well. I brought home my homework asking for help and not even my mom could understand it, we left a comment saying we couldn't understand it but the teacher didn't help me, she just put "Great Job" on my paper. The staff (front office) said we didn't live in the place we lived in even when we came in with proof we did, they still didn't believe us. It took 2 years for us to convince them. The front office people can be very rude sometimes. Mrs. McMullen (4th grade teacher) is the best teacher you could ever have. She's very helpful and amazing. She returns emails very fast and makes sure every thing in her students lives are going well and if their not she helps as much as she can. I would recommend this school for anybody."

    "This school has great caring teachers! This is our second year there. I wish I could say the same for the principal. She is rather standoffish. She will be physically there in conversation but very aloof in communicating. They need a larger lunchroom to accommodate the kids. There does not seem to be enough time for the kids to eat their lunches. They are rushed in and out because the next grade is coming in. I would rather my child finish their lunch and a shorter recess than being hungry all day. Recess is after lunch. I do love that it is a STEM school this year. My child is soo excited to do the science experiments. The right amount of homework is given (not too much or too little). The later start time for school is nice as well. I feel my child is getting a good education @ Polton."

    "Polton has always been a really nice school. The teachers and staff are outstanding. I have had 2 siblings and 2 children go through this school. However, a couple of years ago the school made the decision to eliminate recess. I am disappointed!"

    "I have a kindie and a second grader there and they both love this school and the teachers there are wonderful. At the last school my daughter went to the teacher was not as involved and she cried every morning on her way-well she no longer does that now. I LOVE this school!"
