My children and grandchildren have attended Scott Avenue over the past 23 years. In all categories it has remained excellent the entire time. Parental and community involvement is also very high. I would definitely recommend Scott Avenue School if you desire a caring and competent environment for your children.
Scott Avenue is a wonderful school. Mrs Marquez (1st gr) is the BEST. Kind, compassionate, fair and honest. Sets realistic goals to her students. Office staff are needing a refresher course on communication with parents but overall they are great. The increase in class size because of "Inter District Permits" and "budget" has hindered us. But these teachers make miraculous happen with what they are given, even if it's out of pocket. Parents could volunteer a lot more.
The staff is amazing. The teachers are most than willing to talk to parents outside of their regular hours. There are notifications to parents via voice mail messages regarding news and events. My child loves this school and feels safe there.
Scott Ave has a great principle and teachers. My son is learning and has not had any problems. I am happy with this school for my children.
I'm very happy with this school. Staff is very dedicated. Parents are highly encouraged to get involved. The budget hinders this school from being even better. Thanks Scott Avenue my kids love their school!
I have the fondest memories of this school. I had Miss Dietrich in Kindergarten. All of my brothers went to this school as well. We were in this school until 6th grade and then on to Granda Jr. High. We had the best teachers, and so much fun! All of us went on to graduate with only the best of memories of school. Thank-you to the staff then and now! All the Best, Janet Stevens
I love this school! I was in Mrs. Pettibone's Kindergarten class in 1962! It was a good school then Mrs. Pettibone could teach you to skip like noone else! She was about 150 years old too!
I have two children that just started attending this school in September. My kids are from a private school and I was not thrilled that the economy force me to have to put them in public school. But, I must say this is a great public school. I am very impressed with the school academicly and My kids love it. I now have a different outlook on public schools.
My two children attend this school one in 2nd and one in 3rd. We came from another district and they love this school. The teachers have been wonderful and they really enjoy attending school. I am very happy that my children get to attend such a great school.
I can't imagine a better elementary school than Scott Avenue. I have 2 boys who either have attended or are attending Scott currently. The teachers are very dedicated and care about all the students. And Mrs. Weiss, the principal, is the best there is around. She personally signs all the students report cards and gives them positive feedback. Yes- each and every students report card she comments on. That is how above and beyond the principal and staff go to ensure your children will be successful. Scott Avenue is a great school.
I have 3 kids @scott Ave they aer doing great the principal is great Mr grubbs is a wonderful teacher 2 of my kids had him and I cant wait for my 3rd to have him great school.
My child has been attending this school since kindergarten. I have found the teachers are very dedicated, will go above and beyond the expectations to teach and assist the children. Mrs. Ellefson has been a fantastic role model in my child's life and she has made a great difference in her learning skills. Principal Weiss has made it possible for the children to have the best learning experience and is doing a great job maintaining a wonderful teaching staff. Scott Avenue gets a A++ for their dedication and fantastic performance. Thank you
This school has some of potential. Unfortunately a lot of discipline issues go unaddressed and as a result safety is compromised and children are distracted from learning.
Scott Ave School has a principal who is wonderful and cares about all the students. Her first week as principal she made it a point to get to know all the kids by name. The teachers and the principal go above and beyond what is expected of them. There are many wonderful programs for the kids, both aiding in education and behavior towards other students. There is also alot of parent involvement.
Scott Avenue is an outstanding public school with dedicated teachers and challenging academics. We have had three children attend Scott, one currently. The leadership and quality of the principal and teachers is excellent. The Teachers really seem to care about there students. The extracurricular activities are limited in scope but what is available is fantastic. The play is the only fine arts program available. There is no music program but from time to time they will come up with a piano class, or an etiquette class. The bottom line is that there are a limited amount of resources available and I know the school attempts to allocate their funds where they deem best. This leads me into the parent involvement. It seems mediocre from the surface. I believe this area could improve.
Great teachers. I have twins that attended kindergarten 06. Both teachers showed they care, are very patient and keep parents well informed. Ms. Marquez nd Minasian were excellent.
Excellent school. I have two children that have attended 1st - 5th grades. My kids have had a positive and enriching education experience with both the teachers and the staff at Scott. Both of my kids receive mostly A's and a few B's and that is the direct result of the wonderful teaching staff. I rate this school with a high mark!
The teachers are great. The platoon teaching seems like a good theory, but moving the kids around stops them from having that important bond with one teacher. There is also less oppurtunity for parents to get information about their children's development because there are 3 people to communicate with. The website is great to use and most teachers pick up there messages timely. The homework is overwhelming about half of the days assigned and there are times my child didn't get enough instruction in math to do the homework correctly. The activities at Scott are wonderful, especially for Kinders. There could be a lot more of them, though. The teamwork between the teachers and the principal could be better.
I'm so pleased with the teaching,and curriculim at Scott Ave. We come from a local Catholic school and my kids were falling behind in academics until we put them in Scott Ave.
My daughter had a wonderful first year at Scott Ave (kindergarten). The curriculum was far more advanced than what I expected of kindergarteners. Being on SSC, the state budget is tough on the schools and teachers are expected to do more; these dedicated teachers and staff are even willing to pay for some school supplies themselves simply because there's not enough in the budget. Outside field trips are costly. The kindergarteners have Farm Day, their 'field trip' right at school (no worries about getting on a bus!) and parents are welcome and encouraged to participate. A wonderful school!!
