    "As a parent i am very satisfied with this school. My kids excelled at this school and continue to do so. Mrs. Martinez was a great principle and will be missed:( Great communication, parents are treated with respect. Stay involved with your children this is in every school Blam is not always the teachers!"

    "I was pleased with this school up until last year...I am disappointed with things that have taken place at this school...I would like to remind a few teachers that best way to advertise your school is through word of mouth. Although there are some really good teachers, there are some that do not know how to relate to the children that they teach/neighborhood that they are in everyday."

    "Colfax Tigers are slowly but surely climbing up the education ladder, and no one can stop us. As the parent of a young soon to be second grade tiger cub I am so excited about the up-coming school year. We will have an amazing teacher this year because the entire staff is amazing, hard working, and genuinely care about everyone. Like every school out there its not perfect, and much work is still needed to compete. In the future Colax will be a model for other schools around the community . I love Colfax for my daughter, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. I tell everyone I know that this school is the place to be for a great education pre- k to 5th grade."

    "I disagree about the bullying, I have witnessed firsthand how quickly the principal and staff work to keep the children safe at all levels and how quickly they respond to unaceptable behavior. The principal and staff at Colfax are amazingly patient and truly caring when it comes to all aspects of the students education and behavior. My grandchildren have been enrolled at Colfax for the pat 4 years and I have seen nothing but cooperation, caring, communication and community involvement while they have been enrolled here. The key is to stay involved in your childs education, know who his/her friends are make yourself available to the teachers to volunteer as their task is not an easy one. Kudos to all staff and administration!"
