Mrs. Pakrad is the best Kindergarten teacher anyone could ask for! She is amazing with the kids and has a wonderful relationship with the parents. I wish my son could have her again. We will miss her greatly after this school year is over.

My son is a Special Ed child and came over to Overlook from Traver in the middle of the school year. At first I was skeptical, but my son thrived. Thanks to their Teachers in Room 24, their OT/PT staff, and Speech staff. We were sad to have left. Everyone was wonderful and caring. A wonderful school for a kid with special needs or mainstream.

Our child spent 4 yrs here K-3 and every teacher was as good as the next! We couldn't have been happier! The staff is wonderful and caring from the office to the principal! Every child is known on a first name basis & the atmoshere is like family.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
