I teach an extracurricular, after-school class for students at this school as I do for other schools throughout northwest Indiana and I can always tell in about two minutes just how dedicated the day-long teachers are to teaching and maintaining appropriate discipline in their school ... This is a school that plainly has a dedicated and consistent day-long teaching staff as well as administrators who expect the best in their teachers and their students (as well as the custodial staff since this is a very clean school in one of the older buildings I teach at) ... the students are respectful and adhere to instruction from me quite willing ... they are enthusiastic and interested and while the subject i teach can be a bit tedious at times, they give their best effort ... as with any group of students who just finished a day of school and are ready to explode into their after-school lives, they do on occasion have an extra energy that needs to be reigned in but it doesn't require more than a simple reminder from me and they are back on task This is obviously a well-run school with educators who care and give their best to their profession, their students, and their school.

Protsman is a wonderful Elementary School. The school has a wonderful way of teaching the children academics. The teachers keep the parents informed of what the children are learning on a daily basis. I just love the school.

Probelms with Protsman are mainly that it is a part of the Lake Central School District - a giant bureaucracy which exists to perpetuate the jobs of the bureaucrats. Not enough teacher control, the bureaucrats are constantly interfering in curriculum decisions. The 'home school' association is merely a fundraising committee for the school, not a true cooperative parent teacher effort. The 'gifted' program lacks a science component or dedicated science space, and the social studies/history is the usual incoherent hodgepodge that is the state mandated curriculum. If you can afford a private school, or to homeschool I would recommend doing so.
