I am so thankful that my children are able to attend a school where the teachers care so much about the students. I love the fact that I feel safe having my kids go to school every morning and I do not have to worry about if they are getting the help they need in class. It never fails to amaze me that when I am at the school the secretaries remember me every time, and whenever a students comes into the office they know them by name. I am sure that Ellis Elementary is among the top schools in Pocatello/Chubbuck and that is because of the teachers, the principal, the staff, and the parents that volunteer. THANK YOU!

Ellis is a great school. I have a 1st grader and he struggled a little bit in Kindergarten but they got him right in the Title One program and now he is caught up and doing great. Our house is on the market and I want to buy a house in the same boundaries so my kids can continue to go to Ellis Elementary.

My 4th grader likes the new playground equipment that you installed over the summer, glad to see the older kids have something to play on. Thanks.

I love the fact that the staff says "Here at Ellis we are a family." They mean it and it shows in their actions. The ladies in the office are inviting and so helpful. The teachers are friendly and so supportive of the students. I see the principal in the hallways talking to students. I am so thankful that my children attend Ellis.

I have a 3rd grader who attends Ellis and I appreciate the fact that the school has an open door policy for parents who want to come in, visit the classrooms, and volunteer. I am amazed by the quality of teachers at Ellis and the positive interactions I have had with them. I am excited for my other children to start school and I look forward to many more years at Ellis.

My child has been going to this school for several years. He has a medical condition that requires special attention. They have been absolutely fabulous to work with. I don't worry about him while he is at school. The teachers are supportive and work well with the children. This school gets tons of parent volunteers who are always there helping out the teachers. I also appreciate that the teachers don't seem to have their own 'agenda'. They teach the kids what they really need to know. We have thought about moving, but in the end we always decide we want our kids at this school.

My 3 children currently attend Ellis. They have had patient, understanding teachers. This school is fed by a close community and that is felt in the school. They have programs in place for peers to resolve conflicts amongst one another. They also have system of rewards for good behavior. I am not too impressed with the cirriculum, but that is a problem with the State, I believe. We have lived in two other states and Idaho has been the lowest academically. Funding for education here is poor and getting poorer, thanks to a recent levy vote in the negative. I believe Ellis lives up to its reputation as one of the best elementary schools in district 25. I am also impressed by the principal, Dr. Geoltz; she is kind to the kids, enthusiastic, and well spoken.

My daughter is a kindergardner and really loves school. Her teacher always keeps the parents informed of everything coming up and encourages parents to come in as much as they would like to volunteer. Most of my friends volunteer. I went for an activity and was impressed on how well they keep the kids under control and interested in what is going on. Lots of art projects and their homework is fun to help with.
