I'm very impressed with this school! I come from the world of ocean view schools and was planning to transfer my daughter to circle view but decided to stay at Schroeder. The PTA is amazing! I call it the underdog school...the families are not as affluent as other schools in HB but what they have the make the most of what they have and then some! Love the diversity and humility of the families...not entitled and snobbish...,it really is just a very large family and I really feel like a part of it. Yes, of course the teachers are amazing and the principal is dynamic! Go Schroeder!!!
Schroeder really focused on students being good people! I love the campaigns and slogans! My daughter eats it all up! It really says something when your kid comes happy reciting and telling you how she's going to be nice and make the world a better place....and not just stressed or focused only on academics!
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 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.
