    "Colorow has been an awesome school for my daughter and neice. The teachers are amazing and have gone out of their way over and over to ensure the kids understand everything and are getting the absolute best learing experience possible. We couldn't ask for any more in a school."

    "My kids love Colorow Elementary, which I think is the goal for kids to love school, and love learning. The staff is great. This is the kind of school where you can talk to a teacher anytime with out an appointment. This school has great teachers who really understand the kids and their needs no matter where they fall on the learning curve, This is what kind of school I think about when you want a strong community, with great teachers, parents, and kids."

    "When the teachers are frustrated with the curriculum its time to go. We are pulling out of the school next year. When the teachers are teaching 2 grades instead of one and they are more worried about scores and attendance than getting kids extra attention and engouraging growth rather that expecting the kids who excel to wait for the others to catch up. I grew up in Jefferson County but now its time to go until things change. They need to start paying teachers better, get better curriculums and have better more accessible programs for kids who are exceling."

    "My son's in Kindergarten and I'm on my last straw with this school. I'm ready to pull him out. I feel this school has taken all of the fun out of learning. For 1/2 day Kinder., they NEVER get recess as they say there is no time yet other half day Kinders. make time for 10-15min. of free play. They NEVER Ever get to paint or even use markers. There is no creativity or fun and all my son says is he is, "Bored, bored, bored." They've only learned about 12 sight words for this entire year and I checked Blue Heron's website and their K class has learned over 50 for this year. Any time I have addressed an issue with the principal or teacher, such as no recess or free play, why no show and tell, the lack of science and social studies learning, why no painting, etc., all I have been told is that my son would benefit from being in the full day K to get those things. Full day costs $225. We and many others just can't afford to add that to our tight budget. I feel Colorow forces you to pay the fee to get the full benefits of K that half day students are entitled to. The only good things about this school are the amazing PTA and parent involvement. There are some good after school activities."

    "Enjoy having the school close! There has been a steady stream of children/parents leaving this school for the past two years due to the "Changing of the Guard". Several of the teachers and Principal worked together at a previous school and we initially thought this was a good thing until we realized they all cover for each other and pass negative information along to sigmatize rather than teach children. Parents are helpless because when accusations are made (my child was singled out in front of a class as well) the principal forces the teacher, parents and student to sit in a room and work it out rather than investigate the poor treatment. Students are punished for acting out- why aren't these teachers!?!? I just hope that once they close this school these teachers go back to their previous schools and stay away from my children!"
