Both my daughter & son go here. My daughter is a 1st grader with Mrs Machado. She is awesome. My son is in kinder with Mrs Streeter. Another amazing teacher. Mrs Bishop continues to be a outstanding principle. Very involved and caring. Proud to be a parent of this school.

Hopefully, your child fits in their 'box'. If so, you will find this a very good school. Once we had special needs, it became a long long road. Alienated a most important parent/school relationship. What a shame.

Terrific school! One of the best in the state. I am proud that my kids go there and the pto is actively involved and the support is overwhelming. Our children are blessed with music every week and there is many oportunities to be involved with sports, clubs and much much more. The principal has made a point to know all the childrens names and make each one feel special. That is what creating a healthy learning enviroment is all about.

For the most part, I have been very happy with Truman Elementary. Mrs. Bishop is an awesome principle who truly cares about the academic success of all the students. My daughter loves going to school and I feel that she has had very good teachers. I also feel that my child is in a safe environment and is academically challenged in the classroom. However, I wish that there was more of an emphasis on art and music. I feel that all students should have music and art class at least once a week.

I was very impressed in the academics category when I saw that my children had achieved very good grades at Truman.They were well challenged, long enough extracurricular activities and great principal leadership. They now attend Gerald R. Ford elem. school.
