My grandson is a 1st grader at Bonner Elementary School, and when I am in town visiting - I have been privileged to see what a fine school it is. The staff is friendly and helpful - the safety precautions are taken seriously - and my grandson LOVES his teacher and his school. I attended the Halloween parade last October and found it an extremely fun event for everyone involved! The progress my grandson has made since I was last here in November is remarkable - and he is excited about going to school every day! What higher praise is there for a school than students who love to be there??

The teachers go the extra mile. We have great parent volunteers. My daughter is in 1st grade and is a 3rd grade reader. They have a great parent support group.

I dissagree greatly by the rating of GreatSchools. This is a very good school. I am a Middle School Student from stewartville, and I love it here. The food is great, the teachers are dedicated, and the school programs are fun. I recommend this school for all ages.
