Sibley Elementary School 5

Posted September 15, 2015

Sibley is a wonderful school for everybody, children, parents and staff. All the teachers stay there for many years showing they like how the school operates. They are all dedicated teachers who care deeply about their students. All the staff, from administrative assistants to cleaning crew, is wonderful. The principal Scott Sannes is also great. He is a very honest and direct person who doesn't waste time in superfluous communications and is always supervising and there when needed. My two kids, one still there and one already in the high school love Sibley.

The principal is arrogant and abrasive. His behavior in his personal life has created distraction and caused discord within the school community. This school has poor communication with parents, generally. There are some good teachers, but in my experience, the school does not view parents as important partners in the education of their children.

Sibley Elementary is the reason why we live in Northfield - in fact the whole Northfield school district is fabulous, with wonderful, dedicated teachers and staff . Scott Sannes, Sibley principal, is up-to-date on every kid in that school. I am very impressed with and very proud of Sibley Elementary.

As of 2008 - we love this school. The principal, Scott Sannes, sets an excellent example and works collaboratively with his teachers. Hard to go wrong here.
