My daughter is special needs. Some of her teachers don't follow her IEP. Some of the teachers make my daughter feel awful to the point she feels stupid. If you have a child that is special needs Avoid THIS SCHOOL DISTRICT. This is not a good district for special needs. They will not provide adequate services for your child. My daughter has to go to counseling because teachers put her down. BEWARE!!!

I was a student at Schuyler-Colfax as a kid and now, I am one of the art teachers. Schuyler students are bright, driven, and deserving of the best education they can get. The student body, as well as the faculty, are a family. We support one another and band together to help those in need. Last year, our school raised over $5,000 for the relief fund in Haiti by selling student-designed heart pins and raising money at lunch. They donate to Pennies for Patients, Toys for Tots, and The Valerie Fund, as well as countless other organizations. Schuyler-Colfax Middle School is a school filled with a fantastic group of people who deserve the best education in the world with the best resources possible.

Schuyler-Colfax is run by a caring and dedicated staff. They understand the growing years between 6th, 7th and 8th grade. They nuture our 6th graders, let our 7th graders grow, and prepare our 8th graders for high school. That, in itself, is a daunting task. They provide a positive and safe environment where our children can learn and tap tap into their own creativity. Thet are there when our children need them the most.

Mrs. Sherwood needs to retire and fast. School is out of control. Kids are wild and disrespectful. She nor the VP has any control. They let the kids get away with everything!
