All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The teachers at this school are great. They really care and want to see your child succeed. I really liking the direction the school is taking to meet the new state standards. I think there needs to be more teacher supervision during free times like recess and lunch to avoid bullying which is happening a lot.

My kids have been going here since 2010 - they have been challenged academically and they have excelled - ISAT scores have been normal to high average and they have good personal growth. Teachers are accessible and address concerns quickly. I do wish it would be a three year school though - kids don't seem to get a good foundation with only two years - if it were to be a third though fifth grade school I think it would serve everyone better.

My daughter goes to this school and we have had nothing but problems. Bullying is a serious problem at Americana, yet teachers and the principal have done absolutely nothing to deter it. They do not seem to care bullying happens on a daily basis. The academics are poor too,in fourth grade they still havent even started division and never have spelling tests. The students are allowed to set their own goals on reading, no matter how low or high and this seems detrimental to the learning process. This school is absolutely horrible.

My daughter is in the 4th grade in the ATP Academically Talented program and she loves it. She is not bored and has a great teacher. she reads at 8th grade level and I absolutly think she is doing very well. I am very happy with this program.

I have been very disappointed in my child's experience with this school. The teachers and the principal seem very disinterested in teaching the students. Teachers giving kids a multiplication cheat sheet instead of making them learn them is just wrong. I have a 7th grader who still struggles with his X's tables. One year my son was bullied and nothing was done. The next he witnesses at least 2 fights break out in his class alone. Something needs to be done to impove this school and if it were me I would start right at the top - the principal.
