Great school, my husband and I are very impressed with the time and attention our son got when he first moved here. The teachers were on the ball and we felt that he was receiving an excellent education.

Sadly, Triton principal tells you what you want to hear and makes things sound great, but absolutely no follow through. No opportunities at all for a gifted child. Nice school for an average child....not an easy place for a child outside the small box of 'normal.'

caring environment. Offers full day, everyday kindergarten program.


Posted May 19, 2006

I am a former student of Triton. My oldest child has been in the school system for almost 5 years now. Most of the teachers are awesome. As with any schools they have a few that are not. But asked to be hooked up with a few parents and you can find that information out. They do have a few issues, one being the time it takes to get some of the special things your child needs to get approval to be purchased. Especially if it has any cost associated with it. Their playground,they claim is handicap accessable... that is very miniual at that. Especially when you consider the amount of kids out at recess at one time. In their kindergarten program they have an awesome set up, two of the four classes are teamed taught, by a wounderful pair of teachers. This is an awesome expirence for most children!

We tried Triton elementary in Dodge Center Minnesota for 1 year. We met with the principal for a meeting before switching to Triton. We asked for three things:1. Academic challenge 2. Encouraging parent volunteers and 3. Gifted and Talented program. The principal said we would see Triton deliver on all those areas. They did not deliver on ANY of the areas. I did get called to volunteer twice. The principal did not oversee the Gifted and Talented teacher at all and my son's first year teacher had little or no support from administration.
