    "We open-enrolled our daughter to this school a couple days into the new school year as a Kindergartener. My husband & I read the negative reviews after we accepted her enrollment position and worried only one day about cliques, poor leadership and disorganization as mentioned. Parent your kids, cliques won't be a problem. Leadership and organization haven't been a problem at all and the school is amazing. If parking is a problem, get there a little early. This is life. We've seen nothing but growth in our child and the staff is excellent. Sounds like a group of a few parents had their britches in a bunch over an issue that wasn't resolved or addressed to their liking. Seems like everyone else loves it!! There are wealthy families who's kids attend this school but their money isn't thrown around from what I can see. Lots of blue-collar folks send their kids to this school and the balance seems to be an even one all the way through. We love NES and couldn't be happier with our decision to send our daughter to this school."

    "Niwot Elementary is a decent school if one is satisfied with a leadership team who caters to the very wealthy, the gifted student and the student who struggles; not the middle. Even students barely meeting standards are neglected. Educated parents does not equate with excellent supplemental support for our children; the parents are not experts at the materials being taught in the classroom. Many of the teachers are excellent, but some of the paid (meaning money donated by some of the parents) paraprofessionals are without an educational background/degree. The teachers focus on the gifted students and those who are below grade standards; not those in the middle. Although this is a school of differentiation, yearly, we hear from the principal that it needs to be improved upon. Bullying and cliques are a problem at Niwot and are not addressed by leadership or parents. New principal (from within district) 2013-14, will she be influenced by those with a personal agenda for their child and the means to pay for it? Drop off/pick up is nothing short of chaotic and stems from parents who ignore the rules the PTAC has worked hard on promoting. Telling are the posts as far back as 2007."

    "A great place to learn many aspects of life. There is strong parental support which adds to the strength of the instruction."

    "Niwot Elementary is a deeply troubled school. If you have a child with a disability you should stay away from it. The principal of the school doesn't support kids with disabilities and doesn't recognize the need for change. Very sad situation persists for years and most of the families with disabled kids had to live this school for various reasons. I would not recommend this school to anyone disabled or not. Your child will not get adequate support if he/she needs it."

    "The bad: very weak leadership from principal and drop off/pick presents safety issues. The good: most of the teachers do a wonderful job, parents are extremely helpful and give the school a ton of money."
