I strongly disagree with the lack of challenge; they have a very open ended curriculum and students can take themselves as far as they wish. The comment about Lansing was rude and uncalled for--Waverly and Lansing serve their students to the best of their abilities. I think Colt is a strong building and love the new K-1 concept. Staff and administration work hard and meet students neeeds.

This school is not challenging enough for my children. Waverly schools have changed a lot since we were in school. They aren't any better than Lansing Public schools really.

Colt is a wonderful elementary school. Teachers are great. My son attended Kindergarten and 1st grade and I was very impressed with his teachers in both grades.
