    "My son has attended this school for 2 years, 4th & 5th grades. We have been a corporate re-lo family, so the starting over process is not new to us. The school has a motivated & enthusiastic principal at the helm. His commitment to the children filters through into the classroom. You can look at test scores & the school measures up quite well. My son was inspired daily. His 4th grade teacher saw potential in the creative side of my son. She maximized that and helped him use it to his benifit. She stayed in close contact with me as we watched my son explode in the areas of English and Liturature. He has developed a love of writting fiction, and a love of learning. I give this school a big thumbs up."

    "Our son is attending a 5-year-old program at Countryside. The school is quite large with 3 playgrounds and an area for soccer. The parking is lacking, in that when you drop or pick up your child many parents have to park on County Line Road, which is a major thorough fare. The library is our son's favorite room. While the teachers are very good with all of the children, the rooms are almost too large, which sounds strange. However, a child needs guidelines and the children have few to follow, save for circle time and snack time. My son has changed since attending Countryside, he is not as gregarious or happy go lucky as he was last year while attending Woodland Elementary. Curious considering that they do not have air conditioning and no designated areas for soccer. Perhaps less is more? Time will tell."

    "until this year thought the school and staff were great. What a difference one teacher can make! We are very disappointed in the quality of my child's current teacher. Grading is not being done, and the children are constantly being humiliated in front of classmates for low grades, missed homework, etc. We are used to a strong parental involvement at this school, and this is currently being discouraged. Many parents have gone to the principal, with little or no results. We will not be sending the rest of our children here."

    "Strong parental involvement coupled with an excellent staff make Countryside a wonderful school. The students and staff are lucky to have a beautiful new building with ample room and resources to encourage student growth and development. We have enjoyed each teacher and consider our children lucky to be part of such a strong and respected school."
