Principle Johnston is a problem, feels she can ignore school policy and make ridiculous and unfair judgement calls that undermine parental rights. Avoid.

This school has the best first grade teacher a kid could ask for. Mrs. Amanda Aubart rocks! My son hasn't had another teacher who has even come close in comparison!

Terrible Principal...Have never dealt with such a evil person. Controlling, self centered person. I would highly avoid this school due to Ms. Susan Johnston. Seems to want to tell parents one thing and do it another in which is her way. AVOID!

What an amazing school! The principal has engaged the students and teachers in such a way with instilling "ZEBRA PRIDE"! All the kids love Zimmie the Zebra and really put forth such an effort to win stripes, the golden vacuum, and bus points. It will be hard for any other school to measure up to ZES.

I love ZImmerman elementary and so does my son. The teachers are great and very involved with the students. I get feed back on a regular basis and if I have any questions or concerns they are addressed right away. The staff wants the kids to succeed and help in any way they can

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
