    "I encourage the parent of the previous review to please contact Colonial Elementary School. At CES we strive to meet the needs of children in a positive and nurturing environment. Please contact the principals, our dedicated counselors or your child's teachers. Thank you."

    "The principal is near impossible to get a hold of on the phone,or face to face meeting.The staff is inflexible.We have a special needs son and wanted to be a part of his summer school tour experience to be sure he was able to communicate with staff if there was a problem.This was unacceptable to the principal.We weren't asking to come into the classroom and I even have child clearances of my own to offer.It has been three months since we registered for the school and no mtg. has been set up yet for an IEP.He has one from his last school and some new diagnoses.If you don't know the right people or your child doesn't fit the mold,you have a battle on your hands.We have medical staff with recommendations and I was told that he will be put in a class and then observed, that none of what he needs will be in place until they decide.We tried this school district's approach once before and they hadn't been in to 'observe' him as of thanksgiving of that school year, at which point I pulled my kids out and cyber schooled. This time, we aren't waiting until school starts for them to tell me they just don't have time to get in there because of staffing and have my child suffer for it."

    "My 2 step children and my daughter previously attended CES and my son currently attends as a 4th grader. My son has an IEP and 504 for speech and ADHD and the interaction and experiences between my son, myself, the teachers and the counseling staff has been phenomenal to say the least. Every teacher and every staff member I have had the pleasure to interact with has been helpful, caring, nutruring and sincere. Every one of our children have been honor roll students. And my son's PSSA's....well he scored advanced all the way around, with ADHD. That alone should speak for itself when it comes to the level of education this district provides!"

    "While this is a larger school for an elementary school, it is due to the fact that they feed into it from several TOP level K-3 schools. Our daughter went through this school and excelled and thrived during those years. Teacher interaction with parents is very high, and the staff are very available to parents. We communicated via e-mail for daily/weekly items, and via the phone for more significant communication. Parent teacher meetings are frequent enough, and if you get involved with the school, you end up seeing the teachers at extra-curricular activities and other events. They have many many activities for this age range, and the technology in the classrooms (computers, math tools, computerized boards, etc) is astoundingly high end and new. This school exceeds anything a private school could offer. My 10-11 year old thrived here and went from an OK student to an honor roll student here."

    "I love this school! I think it is perfect for grades 4 and 5. I don't agree that 5th graders and 1st graders belong in the same building. I like the cluster-aspect of the school and I feel it prepares the students for the middle school experience. They are currently going through major renovations but it does not seem to be hindering on the students learning. The renovations seem to be helping build classrooms of the future!"
