All 3 of my boys attend/attended Atwood Elementary, we are so lucky to have such a great, safe school for our children. The teachers in this school are all we would hope to have for our children, no kids fall through the cracks, they have special techniques such as, music to help kids learn spelling and math. The teachers work with parents as a team, which is very important in our children's educational needs. The building is newer and beautifully done. If you are considering Atwood, you will not be disappointed with this choice, they are a blue ribbon school and they definitely deserve it too!

Is a top educational institute with quality leadership and exceptional educators. The curriculum is challenging, but Atwood's all inclusive policy ensures the needs of each student gets met. My only complaint is class size. I believe smaller class sizes would ease they load on the teachers and increase student productivity.

My son came to Atwood at the end of his 3rd grade year. He absolutley loves this school compared to his other Charter school. He is in 4th grade and he is doing so much better than he was in the charter school. Atwood is an excellent school

I have a kindergarten and 1st grader, and without the awesome teachers, they would not be who they are today! Thanks to the staff and TEACHERS! I would highly recommend this school.

I have a daughter in 2nd grade and Kindergarden. We moved from a Chippewa Valley Elementary school, which I thought was great, or so everyone told me. My daughter in second grade has had to work really hard, to get caught up to where these kids are, at Atwood. My Kindergadener is so far ahead of where my older daughter was at the other school district, that I'm just amazed...kind of blown away by how good this school is. It's a Blue Ribbon Elementary School for a good reason.

Atwood has many wonderful aspects... the excellent clubs (Garden Club, Recycling Club, LEGO Club, Broadcasting Club) and many after school activities! The parents get very involved, and have wonderful school dances, fairs, etc. The teachers couldn't be better..... I couldn't ask for a better school!

Atwood has been a wonderful school. As of this review, my daughter has been enrolled for 4 years. She has always excelled in her classes due to the quality teaching. Extra classes have included Spanish, Art, Music and Library. There has always been family functions to attend throughout the year to bring the parents together as well. This school goes highly recommended.

I love this school. I have a 6 and a 4 year old so I'm new in the school system. The academic programs are a little more advanced than from what I remember, but that's a good thing. The teachers-the whole staff is wonderful and helpful. I can't wait until my 4 yr old gets to go.

This is a great school. The teachers help the children exceed any parents expectation of their child. The RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, SAFETY rules are set and this helps the children have a great learning environment. The Everyday Math program is wonderful (no matter how a child is able to learn). The parapros and support staff are above the best; if your child needs support they are there. The Spanish, Music, Computers, Library, and Physical Education programs are above the rest; the teachers are to thank for this.
