Love Ostmann! Almost all of the teachers have been wonderful with my kids. The vice principal, counselor, secretaries, and nurses are all so caring and helpful. The principal seems nice, although I haven't had any direct dealings with him. My kids love it here, and it's a great environment for learning.

Ostmann Elementary is a fantastic school! We moved here a year ago and are thrilled with the staff and school. The school has such a fun environment and kids are happy to be there. Couldn't ask for a better school for my kids!

Ostmann Elementary is a very good public school where parent involvement is high and teacher's are above average. Class sizes are just right and the facilities are well-maintained. We had a complaint about a bully and the teacher, principal and vice-principal addressed it promptly and thoroughly. My two daughters both love this school as do all of the other students and parents I know.

Like any school, there are good teachers and those who should never enter the classroom. However, when the principal will not listen to parents and defends the teachers no matter what, then you can't resolve issues. He is arrogant and not held accountable. Myself and other parents are currently looking at other schools or moving. The problem with this school is the leadership directly asscociated with the principal.

Ostmann is an excellent environment teaching character, honesty and integrity to the students. The teachers are child-centered and the administration is committed to providing a safe and warm learning environment.

I would not recommend this school based on personal experience. The principle needs to retire. If your kids do not have any special needs, or if you do not ever disagree with anything, you might not notice the arrogance of this principle. He does not know how to listen to concerns without being defensive, which keeps him form looking out for the best interests of the children. I even know people who have sold their homes just to get out of this school.

This is a great school for you kid if he or she come from a environment that is never held accountable for their actions. The principle in this school hates confrontation. Kids that follow the rules and do their best get the short end of the stick at this school. They still get punished with the ones that misbehave and miss out on time the could be learning because of the misbehavior of other kids. The some of the teachers are great but, they can't teach well because of the lack of support from the principle and the denial of the parents. This school as well as the dist looks great on the surface but looks can be deceiving.

Our son is a first grader at Ostmann with mild behavioral issues. I can't begin to say enough about how fairly he has been dealt with and how well the communication has been from his teachers all the way up to Dr. Sartorius. The teachers are outstanding and parental involvement is incredible. We are truly blessed to have such a great elementary school.

I have noticed a drastic decline in my son's attitute and behavior, since the new Principal assumed responsibility of this school. The teachers have always worked with my son and in my opinion have done a good job with him. My son's negative behavior is a direct reflection of this principal's negative environment that he has created. What was once a happy and positive environment at school, has now changed with the new leadership style! The school use to focus on the positive, rather than the negative. This environment is not conducisve to toward education. Kathy

The teachers are great and care about the children, however I feel that the Principal is arrogant and out of touch with education. I do not have any confidence in this Principal because he talks down to everyone. I believe the Principal's attitude reflects the leadership style of Central office. L Smith
