This school is basicly a let down,, My children have been let down.. I feel like the teachers arent trying.. They do what they have to do to get by and thats it. My one child has learning disabilties and hasnt gotten much help.

There is a lot of room for improvement in this school! Last year my son started kinder and has been known to have problems with speech, comprehension, etc. And of course the principal came up with excuses throughout the year. Naming one of them, "he needs to get his attitude under control." So he started therapy, among other diagnostic programs. Again, still refusing him patience, and an IEP, speech, etc. At the end of the year the school celebrated a Kindergarten graduation ceremony, low and behold, he was SITTING OFF TO THE SIDE OF THE BLEECHERS!!! and not among the other students! was in his OWN seperate CHAIR! Seemed as if he were cast aside and ignored! I wonder if he was treated like this in the class during the year, and my son id no dummy to know he was being treated differently! Children can sense these things. And feel bad that he will unfortunately be attending again, this year for 1st grade. Funny thing is, I tried calling the principal about starting him on an IEP this year, left a detailed message of who i was and my sons's been a full week, and STILL no call BACK! I know for a fact she is NOT looking forward to seeing me this year and I am not for her.

This school has been a huge disappointment to me. I have come from out of state where their schools are blue ribbon schools to a place where they can't even pass their ISAT scores. They have no gifted classes offered and no advanced classes. This state has really made me think about moving my child back to where she can have the education she needs and deserves!

This school is steadily going down hill. My older children went to this school and my 3rd child is now attending. There is a 'circle the wagons' attitude whenever I question problem areas. Poor ISAT scores and the quality of education your child will recieve varies widely by classroom. Not alot of resources for children who may need advanced work.

Iowa Elem. in Nampa,Idaho is a decent school. My only problem with it is the way they respond to people with questions or problems. They definitely need to work on their organization.
