A-1 school. I am sure the rating of 8 out of 10 is due to the vast area the school covers. Once Woodland Hills is formed and Maple Grove has fewer students its going to achieve 10 out of 10. I being a parent of a 1st grader is overwhelmed by the care taken by the teachers and staff. Homeworks come almost everyday and there are weekly tests. Very impressive.

This is a fantastic elementary school. The staff is incredibly involved, the facility is beautiful and the academics are stellar. The students get one on one and are pushed to excell. We recently moved out of state and we all miss this school!

I have 4 children who attend Maple Grove, and have been in their school since it's opening 3 years ago. The staff there is wonderful, the facility is beautiful, and my children love going to school there.
