So happy with Raven Stream, my daughter is in Kindergarten and her teacher is just amazing! So glad she has her and hope my twins will have her next year when they go to the school!

Raven Stream is a wonderful environment for young people to learn. The teachers and support staff are completely dedicated to students and their learning. They communicate very effectively with parents and develop a partnership that helps children reach their potential. The curriculum is very well designed, but even more importantly, the teachers help shape it to fit each kid. The school also does a great job of building a community feel through school-wide efforts to raise money for good causes, evening activities, and other measures. I would recommend the school to anyone.

Raven Stream is an outstanding school! It is filled with teachers who not only provide excellent instruction, but they also have positive and meaningful relationships with their students. The staff uses Responsive Classroom principles throughout the school year. Raven Stream has been awarded as a School of Excellence by the Minnesota Principals Association. I'm very happy that my children have been able to attend Raven Stream Elementary School.

Raven Stream Elementary School is a great school. The staff is unbelievable. My son has mild cerebral palsy and he feels so comfortable there. He gets the best care at this school and he absolutely loves going there and we wouldn't change that for the world.

Raven Stream Elementary is an exceptional school. The dedication of the educators there is second to none. My two sons are pushed every day to learn and grow, and it is done in a nurturing, supportive and fun way.

Raven Stream is a remarkable school that gives 100% to every child that walks through these doors. Giving up when things get tough is not an option. The children here have the entire school cheering them on to give it their all, and I have watched them all excel through the years. Every child at Raven Stream counts! I am proud to say that I am part of a team that makes a difference in the lives of young children.

Raven Stream involves the whole community. The parents have a voice in their child's education. The teachers communicate with parents and push their students to do their best. I cannot imagine raising my four children any place else!

Raven Stream is a great school. The teachers are very skilled and very caring as well. The teachers communicate well with parents if there are concerns and to talk about how well a student is doing. I have 2 children at this school and could not be happier with how well they are learning. Mr. Pribyl is a great principal and always visible to the students and parents!

Raven Stream is a fantastic school. My son started here in 3rd grade. During testing (NWEA), his scores went from the 60th precentile in math (while enrolled in BV/Eagan/Savage) to the 98th percentile in just a few short months. Great teachers, great school. Definitely deserves a higher rating!
