Polk is the best elementary school I have ever seen. My three kids are attending there. Teachers are great, supportive and care. Thank you Mrs. Morehead for everything that you have done for my daughter. You are the best. I also would like to thank Mrs. Garlick for making this school so safe, best education and your support through everything to everyone.

Polk is good but I feel it is lacking supervision during lunch recess. More recrerational options are needed during that time to stimulate creativity. Craft tables or organized sports activities would be such a great adition in improving the childrens social skills. These activities would promote more comeradaty with in the students

James K. Polk Elementary is a great school! My child enjoys going to school because of the teacher, the curriculum and the activities she learns at school. She is a reader so she truly enjoys their library days. The principal is excellent! She is focused and very involved in making sure the students benefit from their classroom environment. The assistant principal is wonderful too. Both of these ladies are all about learning. My husband and I appreciate their diligence.

Polk Elementary School is WONDERFUL! My son has atteneded the past 2 years and is doing wonderful. They have great programs the entire school uses such as JIJI and Accelerated Reader. With Accelerated Reader my son was reading 2nd grade books by the end of Kinder. The staff at Polk is awesome. They are always there for answers. The sports teams are doing great. The Girls Basketball team and the Football team took home the District Championship this year. Way To Go Polk.

I have 2 children who attend Polk age 9 & age 12. Both have attended since day 1 of Polk's Opening Day 2 years ago. The school is fairly new and there is a lot of room for improvement. Academicly both my children are lacking and test scores are low. Polk does have excellent school grounds.
