We LOVE Skelly Elementary! We just moved here from Georgia and the staff went above and beyond to welcome us. The teachers are wonderful and did an excellent job helping both of our girls transition to a new school and making sure they were on track in the classroom and with making new friends. Skelly is a wonderful school!

Our school is super cool! Every morning we all meet in the gym for the Pledge and our school chant. Then Mr. Shuetz high five's us all as we leave to begin our fantastic day! Popular music is blaring and everyone is dancing down the hall to their classroom. I like to keep the spirit going with "drops in the bucket" when we get to the classroom. It gets a bit crazy as everyone tells me what a pretty dress I have on, or how nice my hair looks today, etc. But you know, it sure makes me feel good...and alive!!! I love my Skelly School, my Bread and Jelly School!!!

My 4 yr old attended the 2005 school year. We were very pleased with the entire school. The staff is very helpful, and even after he started kindergarten in a different district all the teachers and staff still know his name and are very friendly. This is a great school.

Two of my children attended Skelly and I was extremely pleased with their teachers and principal. The principal knew each student and their parents by name. You could talk to her at any time of the day about anything. All of the teachers were highly professional, committed, concerned and friendly to parents and students.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
