Our family has had a student at Countryside Elementary for the last eight years and have never been disappointed with the faculty, curriculum or district. Countryside's staff is dedicated, friendly and supportive. They work hard to create a community of administration, faculty, parents, and students who's focus is not only on a quality education but a well-rounded Elementary experience for students.

I can't say enough about this school... I love the teachers that my son has had. They all have really loved thier job and it shows through the kids . My sons teacher Mrs. Berg is wonderful, she connects not only with Ben but also with me. Ben actually likes school and is excited about learning. I just wanted to say thank-you.
