Posted June 12, 2012

My children have graduated from Treynor, and now my grandson is in elementary school. Treynor is a bedroom town with jobs in nearby Omaha or Council Bluffs. Housing is not cheap, and it requires a good salary to live in Treynor District. There are very few low income families, so this is not a diverse community. Most parents have college degrees and expect the same from their children. That expectation of achievement makes this school performance much higher. It is not for lazy kids or lazy parents. Kids do get in trouble, but they go to the cities to do it, and not in Treynor. There is a turnover in families as people move in for the school system, and then may move out after graduation. Parental careers also move people in and out more frequently. Because of this, Treynor may lack the "hometown atmosphere" and friendliness of a similar small town in which neighbors need each other. Much of the growing population lives on acreages, not in the town itself.

The only reason the elementary school received a 7 was because of one particular grade level which has since moved on. Test scores are very high. Teachers are caring. Facilities are great. The last P-T conference has 100% in attendance and this is not unusual. There are more parent volunteers than the school can easily accommodate. Interest by adults is very high in this community and support is great. The last 3 bond issues passed in the 80% range. All buildings are air-conditioned. Elementary counselor, music and p.e. teachers, help available for math and reading. Treynor reported all scores while some districts report only the best grade level.


Posted May 11, 2004

Growing elementary school with new facilities added for the fall of 2004. All are airconditioned. Extremely high student achievement as measured by student proficiency levels on Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. 4% free and reduced lunch. Outstanding elementary band, choir, and athletic participation. Spanish in 6th grade. Usually 100% parent/guardian attendance at P-T conference. High expectations. Caring staff. Tremendous support from the community. Well-behaved students. Experienced staff. Art, music, phys. ed. with special teachers. Reading and math support provided even though federal funds are limited due to achievement level.
