This school has very nice kids and teachers. Bullying is an issue. I am a 5th grade student and i am saying this. Over all, i love this school.

Parental involvement is the key to success at Tokeneke Elementary school. In the classsroom parental involvement and a strong dialogue between parents and teachers contribute to an environment of high student achievement.

Great School with some wonderful teachers, awesome principal and equally if not more awesome assistant principal. The personlized care for the students is worth noting. The sports, arts and music departments are wonderful as well. Overall - its proving to be a wonderful supportive environment for my child.

Beautiful, light-filled and state-of-the-art new building opened January 2008. The school administration and teachers are terrific throughout. There is a highly welcoming atmosphere to attending families - great opportunities to volunteer and meet other parents. My kids have really thrived.

Beautiful new facility. Good size - small and nurturing. Bright teachers, parents not ver welcoming. Needs diversity, none whatsoever.

Not crazy about this school. Principal and assistant principal are really nice and competent, and still our experience here has been pretty awful. Sports are highly emphasized here, academics much less so.
