I have really enjoyed Truman. There are a lot of good things to say regarding the school.
Truman has SPARC for the children's childcare before and after school. There is currently breakfast served in the classrooms at no cost. The car line seems to move pretty well and in an organized manner.
Truman is a great school, very professional and friendly. The teachers treat the parents very nicely and clearly cares about the children, giving them the best experience that they can. I am impressed with the classroom environment, the teachers do a good job of encouraging good classroom behavior.
The school nurse, custodians, councilor, and other support staff make an effort to support/help the kids. I had a very kind school nurse as a child, but the current school nurse goes above and beyond.
I have never been concerned about my children's safety in the school. The door is locked after the children come in, so you have to be buzzed in.
I have a child who needed help with reading, writing, and speech. He reads above his grade level and you can understand him. His writing is still catching up, but they work with him and have given me tips to work with him at home.
In 5th grade, the children can attend Orchestra class. In Music class, some grades play the recorder. The Art and PE classes are both awesome, as well. There is a library lesson and library checkout. The kids really enjoy the computer lab.
Truman does a lot of fun activities with the kids, including a fall and spring fundraiser type party. There have been fireworks and bounce activities at the spring event, the fall event being a dance and having indoor games.
The cafeteria has the standard foods, which you can look up a calendar for on sps.
