I have a son in 1st grade at Errickson and his experiences thus far have been excellent. As a teacher myself in another district, I continue to be impressed by the level of instruction, differentiated learning and challeging material my son is presented with. I am more than pleased with the staff, administrative response and school support.

I have two boys in this school, full day kindergarten, which is amazing, and 2nd grade. We have a new and very approachable principle this year. My son had one incident on the bus, which was addressed by the teacher and the principal before I could get to them. I have been very impressed, and believe my boys are getting an exceptional education.

Have seen the school go downhill in the past 9 years. Glad to be out of the building and moving on. Good luck for the future for those left behind.

Errickson gives great attention to the students and the teachers are fantastic with the kids. They challenge the kids to learn all they can. The teachers also do a great job communicating with the parents. As a result, the parents also have a very tight-knit PTO community with the school and are great with organizing events for the school and the students. My kids love it there and enjoy their friends and their classes. I am really happy to be a part of this school district.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
