Potterville Elementary is organized, have a smaller classroom student teacher ratio. They are making strides to improve technology, programs and classroom activities. They have been adding many new activities that involve the students. They are members of the Michigan Green Schools and are enacting new sustainability projects to teach the children about nature, watersheds and recycling. They have a security policy on visitors. They have the Honeywell Alert System for school closings, fundraisers, etc. They use the online scheduling for conferences, promote their website for communications. They also have many fundraisers that do not just "sell" stuff. Like Target Giveaways, Box Top Contests and Labels for Education. One improvement that MUST happen is the way children are dropped off and picked up. There is no sidewalk from the parking lot to the front doors and it has been very dangerous. Way to congested and the high schoolers are parking in the lot. There isn't a sidewalk near the entrance to walk to the office if you get there late. But this school is well managed, superior for its size and the principal is very active & open to new ideas.
This school has had some turnover the last year in administration, but I STILL love the staff and think they are top notch. There is an amazing PTA at this school. My kids have been challenged and they are above grade level.
The whole atmosphere is chaotic due to the lack of leadership from the superintendent. Many students are not pushed to their fullest potential and mediocre work is acceptable. They tend to focus on disciplining the good children and ignoring the problem children.
