Schneider has the most friendly front-desk staff that connects the parent to their child: be it forgotten lunch, jacket, or gloves. They go out of their way to get the parents involved with the school, such as giving the students an assignment book, so that the parent initialize the book each day, to guarantee that the student does the homework. Reading log done weekly is also signed by the parent for younger students. My kid got 99% percentile state test ranking in both math and reading in 5th grade, Mrs. Colucci is the ideal caring and dedicated teacher, so are all the young teachers who are hired in recent years. The gym, art, and music teachers are excellent, positive, and caring to all students. One thing I would ask for is MORE homework, since the teaching is so excellent that students breeze through their homework.

I have 2 girls at Schneider and we have had a wonderful experience. The teachers are really dedicated and understand the needs of each child individually. Kids that excel are challenged in reading and math in accelerated ways. The new math program (2 years old) is very challenging and contains multiple approaches to problem solving (flexible thinking) and very deductive reasoning I didn't think a 2nd and 3rd grader could do. Also some great activities for kids and families (dances, bingo nights, movie nights, fun fairs) that bring the school together.

After two years at Schneider Elementary and upon talking with many parents from the district, I would rate Schneider 'average' at best. Parent/teacher communication is something you really have to push for and continue to pursue throughout the year which is rather frustrating. In general, information about what your child is studying and what they spend their time doing each day is relatively scarce. We've had a few disappointing experiences with general staff members too. There is a heavy emphasis on the Spanish speaking students and Schneider does offer those pupils special classes. I know there has been debate about Schneider students not being prepared to app to science/math schools in the area and communication between Schneider and Hergert Middle School appears to be lacking. The facility, while probably sufficient, is on the older side and without any bells and whistles...hence our average rating.

My son is off to a great year in 5th grade. He loves school and that makes a happy home and family. We know it wouldn't be possible without such a great team from Schneider School. Kelly & Steve Landorf - Parents

This school has a great hometown atmosphere. The staff all seem to really care about the kids. A new Rock Climbing Wall was recently donated by the PTO. The new Principal and new District Superintendant are working hard to improve in areas where needed.

this school is wonderful. the teachers and staff are great. the school has a new addition. there are so many events going on and the parents that volunteer do a wonderful job everytime! the academic programs they have really make learning fun for our kids. the children do spring concerts and their music teacher has taught my children so much more than singing. artwork hangs in every hallway, the yearly olympiads are alot of fun for the kids and parents. this school deserves an A+.

Everything we have heard about Schneider has been positive. We have several neighbors whose children attend the school and they all say the teachers are very caring and helpful and they take time to identify special needs children and work with them. The principal is new but seems to be doing a great job and is very involved with the students.

We are new to the area.. after speakiing with the new principal we felt very welcome and excited, even if the school doesnt have A/C thru-out.. A nice feeling is that several teachers have been there for several~many years, I feel that speaks for itself.
