I love Schalm School. All of the teachers my kids have had were excellent and my children love them. The principal is very involved and knows all the kids by name. We are extremely happy with Schalm School in Clawson.

Schalm elementary school is a great school. From the parents, to the teachers down to the principle who personally places each student with a teacher that meets that child's needs. It is the best school in the city and I will be sad when we leave.

This is my child's second year at Schalm. I have found the teachers to be not only competent but enjoyable for my child. The classrooms are larger that what we are used to, but I believe the teachers handle this quite well. Administration is responsive and has a strong physical presence which is a plus. My children scored above the meap test results last year, so I am pleased academically as well. It is a nice little community school. Nice kids, decent family involvement and strong leadership. What more could you ask for?

This is an excellent school. My daughter was in kindergarten and she can read well now. I sent my son to a catholic school for kindergarten 7 years ago and she is recieving the same if not better education. The teachers were wonderful and the principal. I love this school.

Classroom sizes are way too big. Twenty eight children in one classroom is way too many for Elementary classrooms.

At Schalm Elementary School, my children have enjoyed a very positive learning experience in a safe environment. We are impressed with the parent involvement activities such as Math Night and a special Reading program for parents of first graders. The school also hosts a Science Fair for all ages. My children have also enjoyed their experience in the music, art and physical education. Our family has been very happy with the teachers at Schalm. My husband and I have been impressed with principal Patty Pell, especially. She holds special meetings for all parents to get to know her and ask questions or address concerns. Her response is quick and thoughtful. Ms. Pell sends a communication note home every week and encourages feedback. Over all, Schalm Elementary School is an excellent school in our opinion.
