Countryside Elementary School 5

OK, so just finished year one at Countryside. They blew us away, they have done so much for our son, I wish I could give more than 5 stars, they have given so much to us. Our son enetered the year in the bottem 25% of hus class. through Succes center and some pretty fantatci rgular teaching and substatude teaching he grew so much and had fun doing it. Everyone at the school from the Maintance team, to the nurse, to the princpal have been nothing ut supportive and fantastic for my son. The programs they have from science fair, celbration of cultures and more are all very inclusive and even children in first grade can participate. The physical education program is great, there is even one teacher who gives rocks away to get the younger cildren to write letters and learn about science. everyone has a true joy in teaching and learning. Thank you Countryside!!

I have 3 grandchildren at Countryside Elementary and they all have different needs and interests. The staff at Countryside seems to be able to help each one thrive and grow.

I do not know about the regular 'neighborhood' program at the school but the Continuous Progress track is amazing. They have class families that create bonds between different aged children. My son is able to keep the same teachers for all 5 years at school and has flourished from the experience.

The academics at this school are great. Some of the teachers are also great--but there are some very poor teachers at this school too. If you get one of the bad ones your child will have a tough year. Extracurriculars are good as is parent involvement.
