This a great school! We love the teachers, atmosphere and the lunches. The music program is great too.

During the past 13 years I have had two children graduate and one leaving next year. My children have been offered so many different opportunities from cooking, sewing, wood shop, band, chorus, sports, etc. I have never seen an elementary school offer so much. I give them an A++++ for preparing all the students for High School and beyond. The staff works really hard to make sure each child feels special in their own way, keeping our children safe and educating them on the Common Core Curriculum. The administrative staff creates a welcoming environment to all who enter the school. Meeting with parents and staff when issues need to be addressed. The community works together to create a fun filled environment for the staff and students of the school. Each looking out for the other and reaching out when needed. I feel very blessed to be a part of such a positive environment and super glad my children have been able to attend

Komarek School isn't a bad school, but it isn't the best either. There's not many clubs or extracurricular activities to choose from, besides the basic ones that most junior highs already have. The school also is very strict and has many rules, which makes you feel like your being restricted, compared to other nearby junior highs.

Komarek is a great school with teachers and staff who genuinely care about the kids, both on an academic and personal level. My children were new to the district this year, and the staff and teachers welcomed them and made them feel right at home. The teachers make themselves available to parents and are very interactive.

Komarek is the epitome of a small neighborhood school wilth ultra-conservative parents. They lack adequate funding to keep up with technology (the teachers' computers were new in 1991) and many teachers do not teach to the State standards. Komarek needs the ability to use technology in the classroom, which is impossible with ancient equipment and networks.

Komarek teachers give their best to the students. The school places athletics just as high as academics. The principal/superintendent could be more interactive with the students and teachers on a day to day basis. For being a one school district so much more could be put into the school.
