I attended Taneyville Elementary School years ago, from 1st grade through 8th grade ... I am now a 26 year old mother and still living in the Taneyville R-2 school district. I've had many chances to move but want my daughter to attend this school. It provides not only amazing memories for me while growing up but a solid learning system. My daughter is only 4 but school is just around the corner and I want her in a place that she too can experience all the goodness this school offers. A strong learning system, wonderful teacher that have the best in mind for these kids & the sports department is amazing! I have so many wonderful things I could say about this school but I better cut it short! Jamie C.

Taneyville is a wonderful small town school! The teachers and staff all care for each child on an individual basis, ensuring each child reaches there full learning potential and helps them succeed to a higher level. I cant say enough wonderful things about this school! I had the honor of attending when I was a child, and love that I can now send my own kids there. I cant think of a more deserving school to be recognized. I know small schools get overlooked sometimes by larger more populated schools, but this is truly school is truly a gem to our community.

My child has been going to this school for a while , honestly I plan on putting hium in a better school . The bully's are not dealt with ,and if you attempt to say anything you are blown off by the administration .

I love the Taneyville commumity and am proud that my grandaughter attends there now as my children each attended there as well. I love the fact that it is a "growing" small school with teachers that really care and spend quality time with our kids. 1 of my sons required extra help in "learning" due to a disability and is now in college with a 3.4 average grade --we attribute that to Taneyville teaching him how to study and to concentrate. Thank you Taneyville!! I only put 4 stars for principal and parent leadership/involvement as I've been out of the loop for a couple of years although I know my grandaughter has had 2 wonderful teachers so and I'm so glad she is there.

I have two children there now. The school has bullying and it takes alot of fighting with them to get anything done about it. If you are not from here ; you are not very welcome.You are a outsider and treaded as one. There are some good teachers and some that is only there for paycheck.

We moved here from a different school district, and I was so surprised. I had heard good things about this school, but my kids were bringing home schoolwork that they had already had in their previous school. It was discouraging and disappointing to see that this school was so far behind. The only extra-curricular activity they offered was basketball, and if you hadn't played your whole life, there was no chance of getting to play now. Disappointing all around. We finally said enough, and moved on to a better school district.

Our child transferred to Taneyville from Branson. I am happy with his teacher and the rest of the administrators. It is a small school and of course there are problems with that, but overall I am satisfied with my child's education.

I have two children in the Taneyville Public school. In all the time my kids have attended, the teachers have been very open and willing to discuss concerns as well as praises. I have found the entire staff (administration included) to be very concerned for the well being of all students that are attending. In this new school year, several extra curricular activities have been added to the school program. The pricipal and the superintendent have been very helpful in answering any questions I have had as well as addressing any problems to satisfy my concerns. The children in this school have been scoring high in standardized tests, the school has received several awards over the past few years, and it's all due to the staff being committed to giving the best education possible to the students. I am proud to have my kids attend this school.

I have 2 children in the Taneyville school. We have had several problems this year with one of the teachers, and I don't feel that they were adequately handled by the principal. The stress on academics is great, the children all realize how important their education is. However, if you aren't from the area, don't expect a warm welcome. Outsiders are not welcome with open arms, thats for sure! Also, they don't offer much in extra curricular activities.

I have a student past and present in Taneyville school and I am not at all happy with the Principal at Taneyville now. He is not professional and does not stand behind what he says.I am seriously thinking of pulling my children from this school.

Taneyville is an excellent school. The teachers are very committed to their students. I have had children in the schools system for 18 years. I don't have room to say everything I would love to say about this school. The teachers are very concerned about their students and have produced many high achievers. The community is proud of their school. The administration is of the highest quality. They operate on honesty and integrity and are available to anyone who has concerns about their childs education. The staff are caring, and equally devoted to the students. Many of whom, on their own time, donate endless hours to programs that help the students such as wrestling programs, volleyball and STP to name just a few. We are proud of our school and it's students. You would have to look very hard to find a better place to educate your children. We're blessed!

This school does a great job educating students. The teaching staff is committed and highly regarded by their peers as being professional and concerned about the entire student, not just the athlete, musician or academic student. The teachers work early and stay late and are always accessible to talk to parents and meet with them. Their test scores are very good. They are strict but fair with discipline. Students are challenged to excell.

The teacher-student ratio allows for lots of hands on learning experiences and creative teaching approaches and projects. Their Science Olympiad and music festivals provide great opportunities for students. The school sports program revolves almost entirely around basketball and the sole goal is winning, not learning. I prefer an opportunity at 5th and 6th grade levels for all students to play and learn with winning being the secondary focus. I would like to see more sport options available such as softball, gymnastics, track, and volleyball offered on an equal time basis as basketball. The staff is unfortunately very cliquish and fosters this attitude in students. The staff and students do not handle new students/families to the community well. Genuine goodwill and sincerity in meeting the social needs of students is extremely low. Academics are well met, but social and emotional issues such as peer pressure, bullying, ostracizing, and shunning are handled ineptly. Students have an 8 hour school day and approximately 15 minutes of recess time. No talking is allowed at lunch and little time is alloted to developing social skills and relationships vital in these formative years.
