We had a couple kids go to Grace Abbott. One went through every grade and one other went K-2. We had a GREAT experience with the school. As with all schools our kids had a better connection with some teachers over others but that is to be expected. The office staff was great! If you live in the district you will be happy with the results. Great families, great kids, great location. Glad to have been part of Grace Abbott before we moved. We now live in Florida and realize that Millard schools aren't everywhere and you have to dig a bit to get the same quality down here.

Grace Abott have shown to me and my child that the school cares about my childs education. My daughters teacher takes the time an deffort to ensure that the child follows a set of rules and decorum that is important in today's society but also imparts a sense of pride and knowledge to the kids. The principal is very dedicated to the progress and success of the school and the childdren. However like most public schools, the emphasis and attention should be focused more on the high progesssion level of the math and science programs to allow the children to be competitive in a more global economy. This in my view is equally important and the school may be struggling in that dillemma. I still give the school 2 thumbs out. Hopefully they do not rest on the present laurels.

Abbott is an outstanding school. The teachers and the principal work very hard to ensure a top-notch education. My children love attending school there. The class sizes are small, and the children are well behaved. I recommend sending your kids to Abbott!
