Niwot Elementary School 5

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.

When any student needs to talk to the schools council it's far from confidential!! It's a well-known fact that the confidential source is usually the principal. The principal sends an email to the classroom teacher. The teacher now knows what's going on and they publicly embarrassed the student in front of the classroom. There is no confidentiality there.

It’s hard to create a positive environment when everybody's always putting fingers in different directions as to who was at fault? My child went to the counselor's office after recess when a 4th grade teacher said something extremely inappropriate to my child!!! The next thing you know I received an email from the principal needing to set up meeting for us ASAP. The principal refused to believe anything my child had to say. In the long run I took her out of 4th grade Niwot!!

The teachers will purposely leave your child out of learning they don't like you... All the teachers should be fully investigated along with the principle.
