This school is horrible! There is no communication between staff and parents! They take kids out of class without communication with the parents. I specifically moved into the are based on school review. Wow what a big mistake. The class sizes are so small I can't have my child with another teacher because there are none. 4 families have removed their children from the class just this year.

This school is a gem! Every student receives the attention he/she truly deserves, and every staff member at the school acts as their support system. Thanks to its small size, the educational program can be tailored to suit the needs of each student. This also means gifted and talented students are given opportunities to thrive! NO STUDENT FALLS THROUGH THE CRACKS! This is a godsend for the high amount of underprivileged students who live in this community. Most students continue to have close ties with this school long after leaving, and it is always welcoming. The administration is very involved in the lives of the students, and has a hands-on/proactive approach to their education. The administration is always one step ahead in improving the educational quality at this school, and isn't afraid to be fresh and innovative! No problem goes unsolved here. Parent involvement is of course encouraged heavily, but in reality hard to come by in this community. Thankfully, this doesn't stop Topock Elementary, a school that isn't afraid to show up at your door if you've been missing school. That's how involved this school is in the community! Always going above and beyond for students.

My children are thriving in this small school environment. They love their teachers! Their teachers treat them like they are special and I know they care about them. They are very encouraging! Also, they love Mrs. Tiffany! They love to go up to her desk and say hello and Mrs. Tiffany is always welcoming and treats them special. I feel my children are safe there and I love that secure feeling! Thank you Topock Elementary!!

My children attended a private Christian school in Southern California so when my husbands company transferred him here to Topock AZ I was a little concerned that the quality of education that I had come to expect would not be matched. I was surprised to find that not only did Topock School have high academic standards and state testing scores (Highly performing) but that it was a supporter of arts and physical education. The teaching staff was always smiling and happy to be on campus which was something I was aware of since I too worked in the education field. I was lucky enough to have kids going to school here and now I am lucky enough to be an employee here. I speak from inside insight when I say that the administration here has the students and the staffs best interest at heart. It is a relief to have my kids in a school that represents more than teaching to the test and instead creates whole individuals to become successful adults.

There is no communication in this school !! My 9 year old son was taken out of the school play today , I was NOT notified of this and when I noticed he was not in the play no one seem to know where he was ?? I found him in a room with another student in detention during the play that I was invited to watch him perform . He went to detention for talking, what bothers me is I was never told of the situation and no one seem to know what was going on when I asked them , The teacher watching him in detention had no idea why he was even there . His teacher sat next to me during the play and never told what had happened ?

This is more than a school it is a family. The kids needs, educational and otherwise, are of upmost importance and are addressed promptly and with compassion. The programs offered go above and beyond that which is offered in most public schools. The art program is far more than 'kid crafts', they are learning art history as well as learning about and recreating works of the masters. There are several after school athletic programs offered that focus on developing the children's ability and discipline. The administration stays current with developments in education and the curriculums are all relatively new. The needs of the kids who are below grade level are met, but the above average children need more opportunities to flourish. The lower grade programs are stellar, starting with the new preschool. The Jr. High could use improving. Overall a great school.

Very hard to get to speak with an administrator. Little to no advanced warning of events where parents could be involved. Poor communication. Rude principal.

My oldest has just started pre-k and we love it! The teacher, Mrs. Haver, is great with the kids and parents.

Topock School is the best school my boys have attended so far in their school journey. I feel they are being challenged academically and provided with extra curricular activities that allow children to be successful. The principal knows all his students by name and so do all the teachers. The teachers are qualified and provide a great environment for learning. I would recommend this school to everyone who has the ability to be at Topock.

My son has been a student at Topock Elementary since kindergarten. Topock has the advantage of being a small school. We feel that our son is getting a great elementary/jr. high education and will be ready for high school in 2 years. The school offers a few sports programs. The level of parental involvement, in my opinion, is minimal. I was the only parent at the DARE programs graduation last year. Overall we are pleased with all aspects of Topock. The teachers and principal are very involved and try to keep the students interested in their school and studies.
