My son is a first grade student at Standing Bear Elementary, and we are very pleased with the school. The teachers and the principal are excellent!!! In addition, we like the parental engagement at this school. Standing Bear offers lots of family activities like movie nights, skating parties, special guest days in the classroom (e.g. Donuts with Dad), and the turnout is quite impressive.
I have two grandsons attending Standing Bear Elementary School. Their family recently moved to Omaha, NE and they are excited about the school, staff, faculty, and the academic and extra programs available to the students. Face it, when your grandchildren enjoy going to school - that means a whole lot of good is happening and children are excelling.
Standing Bear Elementary consists of the most brillant teachers! My daughter has special needs, and her teacher there, Mrs. Keim was absolutely phenomenal. The teachers at Standing Bear give 200% and you always feel like they make time for you. This year, my daughter's kindergarten teacher and her paralegal are so wonderful to my daughter. The school not only teaches academics but focuses on character.
My daughter is in KinderGarten this year 2008. So far so good. During open house of the school I had chance to check school library, computer lab etc. I am impressed. Since I have only daughter and this is her first year in school I dont know much about how other schools are like. To me I can grade this school as 4 out of 5.
