This school has been amazing! They've worked with my son's Aspergers and my daughter has been so happy here! It's a fun, nurturing environment.
I'm very pleased with the new principal and the level of communication he has with all of the parents. He's very involved with the students and is making an enormous effort to know each and every one of them. The kindergarten teacher is assertive and fair and after just 3 days my daughter has learned a new song and the rules of her classroom.
My child just started at Semper and I am just hoping it gets better. I am very disappointed with the extreme punishment from the principal and not allowing a child to be a child. I am hoping it gets better or I will be looking elsewhere for a school that actually allows children to be children, while providing them a good education.
the teachers and helpful staff. the interest taken to ensure that my granddaughter gets a good education. she was behind in reading and is now doing very well, thanks to a very special 1st grade teacher and wonderful aide!!!!!!!!!!!!
The teachers are warm and caring. My kids love the school. The only real concern is with the current administration. It seems that some of the teachers are not as valued as others which is creating a hostile place to be. We will continue to send our children to Semper because of the teachers , not because of the current leadership.
My daughters joined this school after a bumpy experience at their last schools. Semper was everything we could have hoped for. The teaching staff was very open to allowing parents to volunteer in the school. Having home schooled in the past, I can easily attest that the care and concern that the teaching staff at this school doles out on it's students is at a remarkably high level. My oldest had decided she hated school after her last teacher. With steady communication and a kind, considerate approach the teaching staff at Semper ignited her thirst for education once more.
I am a parent of two young children who live outside the Westminster area. We researched at a multitude of schools within several school districts before chosing Semper as the school we wanted to send our children to. After 6 years, we are extremely satisified with the school, its Teachers and staff, the criteria, and the facilities. My wife and I continually recommend Semper to our freinds with small children looking for a premier learning institution and praise the faculty and parents on helping to make this institution a great place for learning and growth.
I have just recently moved away from this school. I had all three of my children attend and all have had an amazing experiance. The teachers are awsome and the staff is kind. My kids learned a lot and and took all of the important knowledge with them thru middle school and high school. You will be very happy with this school. I am sad to have to leave and will miss it all.
My son just started kindergarten at Semper this year and loves it. The teachers and staff are very friendly and caring. We choice enrolled from another district and are so happy we found this school - would highly recommend!
Semper is an awesome school! Our two children are in their first year at the school after transferring from another district. The teachers have been so welcoming to our kids and have shown great attention towards their well-being and success. I have been very impressed with how well the school is run and the level of interaction I get from my children's teachers and the staff as a whole. I would definitely recommend this school to others and feel very fortunate that my children attend such an amazing school.
I loved my five years at Semper. The teachers were caring. Sixth grade was great with our week at Outdoor Lab.The teachers even sang to us at night. The school really prepared me for middle school
We have been very happy with the first grade program and teachers at Semper.
Semper is a wonderful school. They encourage parent envolvement and participation, inside and outside the classroom. I know my child loves everyone who teaches and works there. I feel that it is a safe environment and that the staff truly cares about the children and their well being.
Semper Elementary has consistently delivered excellent education to my two children for the past three years. Their focus on the basics and strong PTA provides a supportive learning environment within the school. Each of the teachers that my children have had have focused on improving their weak areas while enhancing their strong areas. The teachers have been approachable and are open to working with parents who are concerned about their childs education. The school also provides additional activities such as science club, chess club, and usally some type of foreign language learning cirriculum. The relationship that the school has with various colleges in the area enhances the classroom and learning environment and infuses the class with a new perspective with new teaching ideas from the University. The staff at Semper has always been helpful in coordinating various appointments with my children etc. Last year the PTA sponsered new playground equipment.
