Having been at private schools previously, it was an easy transition for my children to acclimate to Independent Elementary last year. The teachers I've had the honor to work with in my children's education, the other families we've met, and the after school program associated with the school are all of the highest quality. It is a wonderful community of teachers and families that provides a well rounded environment for the children to grow and mature in. Definitely didn't expect to find this level of quality and sense of community in a public school. Such a happy surprise!
The community is amazing at Independent elementary. The staff have always made us feel as though we are truly, all one big family. The teachers genuinely care about their students and the families of their students. The teachers guide the children through their academic adventures with love, intellect and compassion. I love the school so much that I am now earning my teaching credential and doing my field work at Independent. This school cares about all of us, they deserve to be appreciated.
This is a great school. Teachers are great. They definitely assist and foster the growth of each students.
My son is a new student at Independent. His teacher Mrs Hanson is GREAT!. She is a natural. The principal is great leader and most of all my son loves going to school there.
Both of my children are students at Independent and they love it!!! The teachers are great and know how to chanllenge the students while encouraging their individual strengths and fostering growth when it comes to their weaknesses. The principal is friendly and is always available.
Great School, great teachers, fine principle. My kids are thriving there.
Excellent school with diverse student body, dedicated teachers, excellent principal, and very involved parents. Bullying is not tolerated. Respect is rewarded. Diversity is expected and celebrated.
My daughter attended private school for the first 4 years of school and I really thought I was getting the best education and school environment. For a couple of reasons we switch to public school, spefically, Independent Elementary. I can't believe the change in my childs teaching quality and activities offered to her at Independent. Independent has excellent parent participation, thereby, offering extra programs that other schools in the district can't offer. I'm able to meet with the teacher as often I need to on a moments notice. I get honest straight forward feedback from the teachers. My daughter senses that her well-being, academically and overall are the utmost concern of the school and she's much more happy here than she ever was at the private school. Because of the environment and mission of the school I'm more involved in her learning and in helping at the school than I ever was before.
