I went to Painted Stone from K-5 and I LOVED IT! The teachers had their days ~ I would say that it is the best school that is in Shelby County, after all - they do have the highest CATS scores! "PSE is the PLACE TO BE!" That is the motto of PSE ~ and it is true! My second grade teacher inspired me to become a teacher!

Staff members at Painted Stone are wonderful! Everyone is there for the right reason and that is to help children learn and succeed. My son is in 1st grade and I can't imagine him being at any other school. I love PSES!!

PSE has a great attitude. You feel it when you walk in the door. The staff, teachers and students are all happy to be there. We just recieved notification that we scored the highest in the district on our standardized tests last year. This school started strong and has continued to improve in every aspect through the years.

I am so impressed with Painted Stone Elementary and ahwat a strong interest they have taken in my children. The teachers and administration really show they care about my children academically, socially, and emotionally. They call when my children are absent, work my children if they are stuggling or they provide enrichment. The new motto for Painted Stone is 'PSE is the place to be!' ...and it truly is...for students and adults!!

Painted Stone is the best place to be. We have excellent leadership and I am proud to be a teacher here. I have seen this school grow into an optimal learning enviornment for students and teachers alike. PSE is very focused on student achievement but, doesn't forget to take care of the whole child. I want my own children to go here and experience what we have to offer!

My daughter has attended this school for 5 years. I have been consistently impressed with the level of learning that is going on within the school. The new principal, Mrs. Shipley, is passionate about all students reaching their potential. Upon meeting her, it is clear that she isn't just 'talking the talk.' I feel fortunate to be a part of this school.

Painted Stone Elementary has once again shown their excellence as a school! The KCCT scores were awesome for the 2008 school year scores! Going into the building makes one aware of the wonderful learning environment that exist in the school as a whole and in each and every classroom. Staff and students are wonderful!

I am so proud to be a part of Painted Stone Elementary. I have been a teacher here since the first day the doors opened, and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. It's not uncommon to find teachers here late at night and every weekend. Willingly we sacrifice time with our families for our students, for they are that important to us! Eventhough we are proud to have the highest test scores in the district, we are even more proud of the relationships we have with our students.

Painted Stone Elementary is an excellent school. Our recent test scores are a testament to our dedication in reaching every child who becomes a part of our family. We have high expectations for every child, and every child is asked to give his or her personal best effort in every area of learning. From behavior to academics, there is no better environment for students in Shelby County than PSE.

Painted Stone is the best place to work because every teacher cares about each individual student. They are supportive of students academics, as well as their social development. Painted Stone parents are very supportive in each and every classroom. I feel very blessed and privileged to work with such professionals and wonderful families.

Painted Stone is a school full of professional teachers who give of themselves to instruct all students. All staff members from paraprofessionals to the office staff have one goal in mind...continuing to teach all students that will one day become productive citizens that have a positive impact on the world.

Painted Stone is far and away the best elementary school not only in Shelby County, but in this entire area! Our son is a fifth grader this year and has attended PSE every year. We are so thankful for the high-quality education he has received thus far. We know he will miss his PSE family when he goes to middle school next year, but look forward to our other two (pre-school age) children having the opportunity to attend this outstanding school soon. We also feel confident that PSE has prepared him well for his future. The principal, Michelle Shipley, and each and every teacher at PSE are dynamic, caring individuals who are well-trained in current best practices. Shelby County is lucky to have PSE and we are exceedingly lucky to be a part of the PSE family!

Painted Stone is attempting to provide a quality education, however, their lack of systematic, explicit instruction leaves students floundering in a sea of disconnected instructional ideas. In the end it is the student who struggles to make connections and put order to what they are taught. Painted Stone has a large number of new teacher who would benefit from solid instructional modeling.

We love Painted Stone! We are only 3years old, but we have made such progress in the last 2 years! Our parents, teachers and staff work together for the benefit of the kids. Students are expected to do their best. Plenty of parent volunteers...always room for more! Kids LOVE art and PE. We keep them busy while having fun. One great thing about Painted Stone...everyone open to new ideas! Also worth noting...safety is very important at PSE.

Painted Stone has developed into a fantastic school. The teachers and staff have melded together to form a family, and it shows in the quality of education the children are afforded. There are advanced acedemics and arts studies. The principal, Lisa Smith, has done a wonderful job bringing this together. Her and her staff need to be commended, along with the host of parent volunteers.
