This is a wonderful school. The principal, staff and teachers that our children have had are all great educators with great personality. We love the community feel and the Watch DOGS program.

We are new to Millard/Omaha and just started at Ackerman. I have so far had a wonderful experience with the administration and staff, it is a friendly inviting environment. My children are in their second week and are already busy with all the programs such as art, music, sports, extracuricular activities and there seems to be much parental/familial involvement.
