Savage is awesome. The principal and teachers are wonderful and the gifted and talented program has been great for my kids. I cannot say enough good things about Savage.

Savage is an AMAZING school with the best principal and teachers in the area. Mrs. Villa is incredible--an excellent leader. The teachers are all very good and the gifted and talented program is the best in the area--it needs to be publicized more as it is the highlight of Van Buren Public Schools. The specials teachers are all excellent and the support staff very helpful. The PTO is strong--has won awards-- and the school will soon be getting new playground equipment courtesy of the PTO. There are monthly family fun activities and frequent curriculum nights. There are so many cool activities going on--little society, wax museum, etc. If you are looking for schools in the Western Wayne-Eastern Washtenaw area this is your best elementary school out there.

There are so many wonderful qualities about Savage! I love the passion of the principal and the staff at the school. Where else are you going to find a principal saying good morning to the kids as they walk in for the morning, calling each one out by name, or when there was a power outage and the principal and school Secretary know the parents as they came in to pick up their kids...and what classroom they were in. AMAZING! I will be honest and say I was nervous to send my daughter to Belleville schools and was trying to get her into Plymouth Canton schools, purely based on reputation and not experience. That didn't work out and I couldn't be more happy! My daughter has had the most wonderful teachers, experiences, and educational growth, that I KNOW 100% she would not have gotten in Plymouth Canton or any other school in the state or surrounding states. The PTO is so involved at the school and have done so many wonderful things for the parents, school building, students, and staff. As a parent, I see this particular school as a blessing. What a piece of mind it is that these wonderful people love what they do and truly care for my daughter and the rest of our children.

The school environment is great - Mrs. Villa gives each parent her undivided attention no matter how busy she might be. Parents always feel welcome and the teachers are wonderful. The one word I can use is "APPROACHABLE" - this is huge for us because my husband and I have full time jobs and the fact that I can call, email or walk-in with a concern and it is addressed ASAP means a lot to me. My son will now be in Grade 4 and I am excited that my daughter will be starting Kindergarten at Savage in the coming school year.

My daughter has been at Savage for 2 years, she loves it! And so do I. The teachers are great, Mrs Villa is wonderful! They make it fun, so the kids want to come back and learn more. The PTO is fabulous, they support the teachers and come up with creative activities for the kids during school and after.

This school, with the help of the district, does little to nothing to assist my autistic child. The majority of the staff is arrogant and patronizing. With only 2 weeks left in the school year the school social worker, who my son meets with due to issues interacting with others in group settings, tells me that all year long he has been working with my child one on one because Ethan "gets anxious while in group sessions" and that working with Ethan one on one is "just easier" Wow, clearly another staffer who took the job because he likes his summers off.

Savage Elementary is exceptional. The principle knows the kids names. Yep, in the halls she say hello to them by name. The teachers expectations of their students is high & the kids respond well. There is also very high parental involvement that just makes the overall experience an excellent one.

I love this school! I have two daughters and they love Savage Elementary. They have great teachers and the principal Ms. Villa is the best! They have really turned this school and this district around in the past few years. My kids are college bound kids and we are staying in Van Buren Public Schools.

Savage School is awesome. I moved my sons from a charter school to Savage. I was nervous about it, but have been so happy with Savage. The staff is very caring. The principal also goes out of her way to make every student and family feel special. I am so glad we made the choice to come to this school.

I pulled my children out two years ago because the school was so awful. My kids academic scores dropped dramatically and my youngest was harrassed with teached approval. A few good teachers in the higher grades are the only reason this school gets a 2. My youngest still has emotional issues with his peers. He has mild ADD. He had minor issues with talking and daydreaming. The teacher wanted to drug him. She targeted him and two other ADD boys. She had all the students reporting the slightest problem to her. He was constantly harrassed by the other children. I found out because I visited the classroom to help and some of the kids bragged about "helping" him. He spent most of the day in isolation. When I tried to talk to talk to the principal she got upset with me and told me that this was one of her best teachers and my kid was a problem child and I was a bad parent. My mother was a k-3rd teacher for 30 years and I have been a PTA president, worker, and classroom volunteer for 15 years... oh and my older children who also have undrugged ADD were star pupils and principal award winners that year... That was the new principal's first year and my last.

Savage is an excellent school. I have participated in the Bring your Parent to School Day and tonight I attended the family movie night. They make parents feel important. My kids loved the movie night. They bought 25 cent popcorn and candy. What a deal! The PTO works hard with the school. I am proud my children attend this school.

I am so pleased with Savage Elementary School. We are supposed to attend a different school in the district, but we choose to drive our child to Savage. Our child gets an excellent education there. We would not go anywhere else!

Today was the last day of school. I was so impressed by the loving nature of the staff and principal. The had the students line the halls and clapped for the 5th graders. That was a wonderful tribute. I have been very pleased with the education my daughter received at Savage. She will be in 4th grade next year. Thank you Savage staff!

Moving here from another state was very scary for our daughters. While we searched for all the right 'answers' when it came to the question, 'is this the right school for our family', Savage had them. We have been very pleased with the parental interaction and participation with the teachers and students. Savage has been a role model for other schools in the district and outside the district with their reading room, and computer lab as well. The active and productive PTO find great ways to raise the needed funds for the improvements needed throughout each year and it shows! Savage is a four star school in my book. I know my children love it and look forward to their extra classes every day. (i.e. music, art, p.e., and library) Savage has some of the highest MEAPS scores as well. Keep up the great work Savage Elementary!

I review Savage as being a A+ school. Savage teachers and principle are involved everyday with the children. The staff is also always willing to help your child in any and every way that they can. I would recomment Savage to all parents who are looking for a school with staff that cares about your child as well as your childs education.As a Savage student parent I am highly impressed with the learning process of the school
