I can not say enough about this school! We had to leave a private school and place our son in public...I was not happy about this at all...But I will say that since then we are happy we did! His first grade teacher was great!!!!! And 2nd grade this year has been the best. His teacher is caring as well as make learning fun. I have had a few questions and concerns and even the Assistant principle took time out of her day to call and take care of those concerns for our sons learning....The teachers care about there students. The school has had days were parents can come and learn about what our child is learning as well as classes to help us with teaching...I love the parent center they have to check out tools to help with homework and extra learning...If you must have your child in a public school this is a wonderful place for your child. Caring staff all the way to the afterschool program! We are pleased!!!!

If I could choose to leave no stars, I would. I cannot believe all of the good ratings for this school. It honestly makes me wonder if these reviews are real. One of my children had to endure terrible bullying, and one was publicly humiliated in front of her peers and told she was "kicked off" a recreational team with no communication whatsoever to me. The communication is terrible. It is not uncommon to get a notification on a Monday about an event that happens that week. We have been there four years. They must think that no parents have to work because they often hold events only during school hours. Choose this school only if you expect terrible communication.

Teachers and administration work very hard in this school. They are friendly and welcoming from the front office all the way to the cafeteria. Kids are happy and love their school. Both of my children are excited to be at school every day!

I have a child at Poole Elementary since 2004 and have been very pleased. As a former teacher myself, I can confidently say that this school has all the components of a great school- effective, caring, and personable teachers; fair and involved adminstators, a wonderful and inviting facility, and a overall staff working together for the betterment of the students. Who could ask for more?
