My children received excellent teaching and support from both the teachers and parent volunteers. Some teachers are better than others but the overall quality of teaching was excellent

Honestly, this school is like a Country Club when compared to many inner city schools. However students receive the full support of teachers, staff and volunteers who encourage them to pursue their goals.

Students are taught respect and compassion on a daily basis. They're taught to resolve issues peacefully and by discussion.

Niwot Elementary is an exceptional school. I rate it a straight 10 with top quality teaching and admin staff. The parent and volunteer participation in each class blew me away as it meant that there were as many as 4 adults assisting a class of 25 kids. This allowed the teacher to provide individual attention to each student. The children are taught respect and tolerance and receive a well rounded education with no barriers to learning. While each child will have a different experience, I am thankful my children went to Niwot Elementary.

Niwot Elementary is a wonderful school in which to educate your children. Teachers and administration put your children first and go above and beyond for every student. Instruction is differentiated for students (from the highest performing to the lowest performing) in order to meet every student's needs. Teachers work together and demonstrate a level of teamwork that is rarely seen in the school system. Parents are also actively involved and encouraged to be a part of the school community. I am extremely thankful and appreciative to the wonderful teams at Niwot!

It's hard to get some of the kids under control when most of the teachers reward students with candy... Too much sugar...

I went to volunteer in the classroom I could not believe how loud it was. The teachers had no control over the students. It was load.

If you want your kids to learn about Science and Technology and Engineering do not send them to Niwot.
