This school is small compared to what I grew up in. The teachers are excellent. The teacher to student ratio is great! Their ethics surpass most other schools. They continue to use playing and recess for social interaction learning! Thank you Trail Wind for being an amazing place for my children to get their education! Parents do need to get more involved, it seems the biggest complaint from teachers is the lack of parent interest.
Great School. My daughter is in 2nd Grade. She loves the school and the teachers.
The review below about how bad this school is, was NOT about Trailwind. I cannot delete it.
My youngest child will be attending 6th grade there this fall. My two older children attended, Trailwind, K-6. The teaching staff are absolutey amazing. There are some "politics," when it comes to certain, parents/situations, and this school definitely has a few 'clicky' parents. But, 90% of the parents are friendly, warm, and genuinely outstanding adults. The education and experience my children have recieved at this school, has been rewarding and positive.
My son goes here. Most parents that send their kids here are snotty and stuck up. They all seem to have their own little High School type click and wont let anybody in. I dont understand why, considering the area has a lot of smaller starter homes. LOL. But the PTO is amazing and the teachers are great. The principal seems like she is missing a few marbles though. The school supply list was the only one in the valley that wasn't in stores and online it was from 2010. She screws up on parent emails. But all in all I think it is a good school.
Great school, great teachers and great experience for the kids. My son went here and now my daughter is going. All grades have wonderful teachers who really care about the kids. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a great school experience for their kids.
I am not impressed with Trailwind elementary. It use to be a better school as I have had two children attend this school for 6 years it has changed adminstration and is declining. Beware parents this is a snotty, elite community and the sister middle school Les Bois is even worse.
Grandparents Day in Mrs. Thornsbery's room was an unforgettable exprience. She had the time so well organized, completely captivated students and grandparents the entire time. It so impressed me that left the School with the deepest wish that once again I could be a third grader and have her guiding me forward in truly great education. Most Respectfully, a Grandmother
My son loves Trail Wind and i am so happy with the standard of education that he receives there. The teachers, and all other staff members, go above and beyond what is asked of them and the PTO are just fantastic!
My two children attend Trail Wind and love it. It truelly is the greatest school ever! The children who attend are some of the nicest kids I have ever met, the parents are so involved with the school, and the teachers are one in a million.
Trailwind is an excellent school! My girls have done incredibly well. Be prepared for many fundraisers and pressure for parental involvement benefitting non-academic activities. This school for it's socio-economic class is well-balanced. Several teachers have found a balance of when to hold the kids or parents accountable depending on the specific situation. Don't call me on the phone if my 4th grader left their homework at home and don't interrogate my Kindergartener why she was late 2 days in a row. The majority of the teaching staff are the best in the state and you won't find a more involved principal! I'd hold him up against any principal in this country!
My son and I were lookind at Trail Wind Elementary to go into 4th grade and right away a group of Kids came over to him and asked him to join in thier game. Every one at Trail Wind were so respectful. It's the best Elemtary School I have seem in Idaho! Great Location,Great teachers and staff,and great kids! Me and my son are really looking forward to this School. Wow,this is the first time he is excited to go to School! I think Trail Wind is 'Da Bomb' as my son would call it!
