My experience with Eriksson squarely balanced to average. There is nothing extraordinary, but neither was it abyssmal. My child's very high test scores did decline during the school year. Discipline and structure are placed above innovation and attendance to individual needs, but I don't single this school out for that. It's common. There is strong school spirit. The focus on the 7 habits of highly effective people (leader in me) is typical of preparation for a highly average life... which for the vast majority of people is a-okay.

Absolutely awesome school. Both of my children attended this school. I loved the warm environment and professional staff. The environment listed in the previous post did not exist. The children are challenged and the school promotes and great learning environment. I would recommend it to anyone.

I absolutely despised this school. My daughter attended for 3 years, K-2 and transferred to Miller for 3-5 for the TAG program. At Eriksson, she was taught at a below average level and was neglected by her teachers and students because of her race and intelligence level. Jealously and racism is spotted easily here.

My son is in first grade here and we could not be happier with the school. The entire staff is great and always willing to help. Mr. Learned is an amazing principal who truly cares about every student. We have a new PTO board this year and so far so good. They are very plesant and really strive to make Eriksson a great place for students. It is sad to see that we were only ranked a 7, In my opinion this school should be a 10.

So far our experience with this school is terrific! The kids have been there for three years, and all of their teachers have been extremely involved and keep the parents involved with the day to day progress of the kids. Mr. Learned is the new principal (as of this year), and he is a great asset to the school, as well. The PTO is great, there are many fundraising opportunities, but without being pushy :) The speech and language, as well as reading programs offered have worked wonders for the kids, and all of the office staff has always been nothing but courteous and extremely helpful.

My daughter went to this school from 1-4th grade. We are now moving to GA and will be missing Mr Burt (Principal) very much. He is the principal I wish I had growing up. He REALLY cares. A visit to the principal office is more to learn to take responsiblity for own actions and less about scolding. He is the greatest. They have great reading and math programs. I was very surprised by the test results shown in this website for the school. The school is very committed to have great scholastics and their activities and actions show it. My daughter loves reading and the school teachers have a lot to do with it. I only wish they had more performing arts.

I went to Eriksson from Kindergarten to some of third. I had a blast! I absulutly loved Eriksson! I had Smith, Williams, Palmer, and Barnett. All of whom were great teachers! I now go to Mendoza in Mesa Arizona and I am in the 6th grade. In the future if I happend to move there, I would totaly have my kids go there!
