Patterson is Phenomenal! My 6th grader has attended since KG. He has struggled with ADHD since 2nd grade and it is because of his extraordinary teachers that he has made great strides! The teachers at Pattersons care so much about the students. Love this school and evreything that it stands for!

This school has something wrong. I do not trust the staff nor like how the teachers use gorilla tactics in teaching the students. They embarrass kids to make them outsiders to other students. Do not take your kids to this school.

Patterson is great school with a wonderful primary years IB program. Test scores are improving and strides have been made to assist students at all levels. The two ongoing issues with this school is lack of consistent leadership and high class numbers in the upper grades. The principal has changed several times in the past few years which causes inconsistency in the priorities of the school and in the handling of parents / staff. And the two upper grades have a ridiculously high number of students in each class. The teachers are excellent, but even the best of teachers are going to struggle with that many kids and keeping up with the workload a large class size requires. I hope the district would support changes in those areas.

This school use to be wonderful. The Teachers are great. There is a big bully problems not just with kids but adults as well. I find it awful that parents would say stuff to other parents kids and think it is okay. I feel that kids are not protected from the bullying that goes on in this school. I feel it is going down hill and can't wIt for next year to hopefully find my kids a new school. Good Luck to everyone.

This school has gone down hill fast. My Daughter is in the 5th grade and has attended Patterson since kindergarten and my 21yr old son attended all 6 years as well. I know for a fact that in the 2nd grade they had more homework. They no longer do weekly spelling tests. I have seen little evidence that they are teaching anything this year. The drama overwhelms the teaches to the point of tears in parent teacher conferences. The principal has no skills for her job. Its really sad to see such a great school go down so fast.

My daughter has done really well at Patterson. She has great friends and has learned a lot. She is advanced and the school makes sure that they challenge her sufficiently.

The teachers care. They all make you feel welcome and show interest in your child. They lead by example, and get the children excited about helping their community and environment.

This school has an amazing staff. I was very sorry that the Challenge program was pushed out to make room for the IB program. It was a great loss for Patterson and the school seems wrong without the program. Those children enriched the quality of the school.

I have two kids in this school, one in 5th grade and one in 1st grade. Since I had been out of work I have taken the time to volunteer my time in the classroom. The teachers in this school are phenomenal. They keep in constant contact with us about their progress and have opened communication about any problems they might have academically. The amount of work that the teachers have to do on a daily basis is amazing. They deal with about 19 kids in both my kids classes, but yet when you talk to them about each student, they are able to tell you all about them. How they remember all of that is amazing. I recommend all parents to volunteer just one full day and they will understand what I am saying. It is important that as parents we have to work with our children daily.

I switched my daughter from a private school to Patterson. I am so impressed with the school and its Special Ed program esp teacher Rochelle Mullenberg. My daughter could not read or write when she started 2nd grade r/t Dyslexia that was not diagnosed at the very $$ private school. Since starting she is now reading and making significant progress thanks to staff. Also they just reached International Baccalaureate Status only school in Jeff Co!! Great schhol
