Ellen Feickert Elementary School 4

Feickert is excellent as long as you stay on top of things as a parent. There are some amazing teachers and some lazy ones. Because of budget cuts they have had to cut amazing staff and educational trips like Sutter's Fort overnight! If you stay savvy you will figure out the gems like Mrs. Start, Mrs. Uebner, Mrs. Zhender, Mr. Larson, Mrs. Stafford and Mrs. Korvink. If you are not an involved parent then take the risk of a lazy teacher. The principal is very good and listens but can be frustrating. A close family friend with a very bright, well behaved, high performer on the STAR test was not allowed to leave her 5th grade teachers class she had been assigned to and move into Mr. Larsons class (one if the best teachers there next to Mrs. Uebner)! The excuse was lack of space. She threatened to move her child from the school to Bradshaw Christian, and the principal did not care when he should have! Ironically, a week after leaving, Mr. Larson received an emotionally disruptive foster kid in his class! That just seemed wrong!! So overall, Feickert is a very good, safe school as long as you get involved and listen to who is good and push for those teachers.

My daughters have attended Feickert for 3 years now. Except for one 5th grade teacher who very much soured my daughter on school, our other teachers have been excellent. Mr Larson is a real asset to this school as is the principal. I have worked as a classroom mom for 3 years and I have seen some great parent involvement but trying to help nominate the school for monetary prizes thru Raleys and other events have failed miserably. Maybe its the economy and parents just don t have time to get involved.

Imagine 5th grade with no book reports, class projects or any other responsibilities other than passing the star test which is just math and English. Welcome to Feickert.

My son goes there, and it's a great school because teachers really care about children's well being.

I have a special needs child who was just not getting her needs met appropriately at other school sites. Her teacher Ms. Carlson and the great staff at Feickert have empowered her with the self esteem she needs to develop into a strong and powerful young girl.
