    "The school is a K-8 and has a wonderful reputation. It is bursting at the seams with almost 900 people enrolled. I wish the school were bigger. Sometimes the class size gets too large as a result of the popularity. Colfax is diverse with students from over 50 countries. It is a neighborhood school where most people know each other. It has a very active PTO that raises over 50,000 annually to pay for extra enrichment programs and technology for the school. Parents are involved and support the school and in turn their children are there to learn. The school has a community feel since it is a K-8. The students continue together from K - 8th grade and it creates a very friendly atmosphere for the most part."

    "Teachers at Colfax are dedicated. They are knowledgeable about the subjects they teach and most of them are very friendly and approachable. Most of them seem very interested in teaching and in the students that they teach. Communication is very good with almost all responding day of to email."
