This is an outstanding school with an outstanding principal, teachers and staff. They maintained high expectations while meeting the needs of all of the students. All three of my children are successful young students and adults.

Independence Elementary is a well-run, quality school. I have 3 children who have attended school here (2 currently, 1 previously), and they have NEVER had a bad teacher. Every experience I have had has revealed hard working, skilled, nurturing, imaginative, amazing teachers and administration who are willing and able to go above and beyond for my kids. I can't say enough about this school. I am also impressed that they instill a sense of community in their education of the history of Clarkston, as well as their academic service learning programs, as this is a very important quality to develop in our younger generation; a desire to help those less fortunate.

Independence Elementary is an awesome school. The principal is wonderful, and he has the best teaching staff in the district. We've been through all grades (K-5) at IE and truly feel our daughter received an excellent education. We have another working her way through currently and have been extremely happy with the caring, supportive teachers and staff. You won't find a better school for your children!

Independence is the best school I know of. The principal and teachers are amazing! Even the office staff and voluntairs are great! They are so personable there, and seem to know ALL of the parents. If your child has problems they will make meetings with the parents to work them out and will continue to do so as long as it is needed! We may move soon, losing this school is the bifggest downfall.

I think Independence is a great school - the only drawback is that most of the activities for the school are geared for those parents that do not work. Working parents do tend to miss out on activities that are held during the daytime hours.
