Schroeder is a great school with progressive teaching methods. All classes have the smart boards and use the GATE icons in their instruction. The principal is great. She is very involved, frequently visits the classrooms and knows most of the kids personally. There are very few admin staff, but there are a great many parent volunteers that literally spend all day at the school running projects, copying, etc. The Preppie K program is wonderful. The teacher is amazing and it really prepares the youngest children for a successful school experience.

This school has a very active group of parent volunteers. Feels like a community school where everyone is like minded and helps out.

This school tries their best to make school fun for the students. Almost all the kids in my whole family goes there. Even though the school is pretty low on money, they always tries their best to make the school a fun and better place. The teachers at Schroeder are wonderful and each one is very unique. Even one of them loves ducks. Another teacher is a crazy disco fan. But the library might close down, because of budget cuts. I hope this awesome school succeeds and will be chose for the $20,000 prize money.

Our first year at the school, so our experience is limited. So far, so good. My daughter is in kindergarten. Her teacher is both caring and professional. She encourages parents to volunteer in the classroom and couldn't make it any easier to volunteer. Parent involvement in the classroom, an active PTA, and good caring teachers (and admin) make the difference at this school. Vicki in the office is awesome and sets the friendly tone for the whole school! I hope the future teachers are as supportive. Good after school Extended School Program at a reasonable price.

Both of my kids graduated from Schroeder and I couldn't be happier. They were treated with love and concern whenever their were problems and they were pushed and challenged to do their very best. Schroeder has a dedicated, stable teaching force. Almost every teacher is GATE trained, as well as versed in working with special needs. It is home away from home for my kids.

I have 2 kids at Schroeder now. My oldest is in 3rd grade and my youngest is in Kindergarten. I have like the teachers my oldest has had so far. They have been good teacher, but yet not challenging enough. My child reads at a way higher reading level and needs the challenges honestly. The kindergarten classroom NEED to get assistants for the teachers. 20 kids that are 5 and 6 are a bit much for one person. They need to really push the academics. AS FOR THE PRE K Program at this school...Excellent TEACHER...very nice. My child did NOT LEARN all the academics he needed there though. I paid for him to learn colors he already knew and play it seems. I was disappointed he did not leawrn more of the alphabet and his numbers

Some teachers are lazy, and the prinicipal sets up so many programs just to earn money for school while she can be improving the educational programs.

My daughter attends Schroeder Elementary and it is an ok school. I would like to see Schroeder offer more to the kids such as different after school programs. One in particular is All the Arts for All the Kids. Or offering Pappa John's Pizza once a month for school lunches.These are just examples. But also I would like to see more school field trips offered, book orders etc. I know there are budget cuts but maybe more parent participation is needed as well. The teaching staff is ok but I feel that it has been just ok. It would be great to see Schroeder pull it together more and strive to be a ten. Honestly I feel that rating it a six or seven is about right.

Schroeder has great teachers who want the best for their students. We are going through a principal change and it always takes everyone's cooperation for this to work. PTA is very strong here which is a good thing. Programs always are run through PTA and the pride for this school is immense. All in all, Schroeder is a strong, caring school.

My child, who gets really good grades, consistently gets bullied by students and teachers witness it and ignore it. Some of the teachers are okay, and the principal is average. However, almost all of the events are set up by parent volunteers.

Well, my son went to kindergarten there last year. This year we have moved to Las Vegas, and I MISS his old school. We did have some problems adjusting with him there, but the teachers and the administration were really good! The teachers really seemed to care about the kids, and tried to make positive experiences. If I could, I would send my son back in a heartbeat!

My child attends Kindergarten, and we have been very happy. He is a 'young five' and we were hesitant to start him this year, but he has truly blossomed at Schroeder. Very welcoming staff and families, great neighborhood feel.

I have notice that the quality that your child will receive depends on how available the parent is to volunteer. Not much art or sports. A lot of political games between the staff and parents.
