My daughter loved this school, we as parent liked this school as well. We are moving because of job, my daughter's first remark was that she will miss her teacher, that is the kind of love she has been able to build in less than 4 months.

My son likes Crane so much. He had been so shy that he hesitated to go to school at the first day in his first grade. When he came back from school, he smiled and said, " School is fun! I love school." Since then, he has been enjoying his school days at Crane.

The cohesive nature of the building! Everyone works towards a common goal, of bettering the lives of our children. What is unique however, is the ability to adapt and change; the ability to think on thier feet and act on it that sets them apart from other schools. No child goes without, no child falls through the cracks. You guys are the best!!

The teachers, students, and parents at Crane school work hard every day to be respectful, responsible, ready to learn, caring and trustworthy. Our new principal, Leroy Greer, is committed to making his staff and every child in the building feel cared for, safe, and supported. There is not a day that goes by when Mr. Greer does not respond "every day is a great day to be a Royal Comet!" when asked how he is doing. Winning a contest that would provide our school some extra funding would be an extraordinary way to show our students that hard work, dedication, and persistence brings success. Despite the many and varied backgrounds we come with, every one who teaches, attends, or works for Crane School is made to feel like a wonderful part of our wonderful school community. I would not work anywhere else!

I would rate this school a 10! I have been a parent at Crane School for 15 years and have not met any other teachers, staff or parents in the district that compare to the enthusiasim for education shown by the Crane Family. No task is to small and no child to out of reach for them. We are on our 3rd principle in my years there and they come not to change the culture and spirit but because of the culture and spirit within the school. Crane Rocks Spirit!

My son's in 3rd grade and loved being in this school. He told me his two classroom teachers so far are great! He had the same teacher for 1st and 2nd grade. He also enjoys his specials (art, music, p.e.). What I like about his teachers is the accessbility, you send in a note and there's a response right away. They also make sure that my concerns are properly addressed. I'd recommend this school to anyone.

I have had to work with the school on many levels for my children ranging from 'great student' to child with disabilities. In light of the fact that there are a good number of children with limited English and teachers must struggle with that aspect as well as teaching curriculum, the teaching is pretty good. There are always the not structured enough teachers as well as impatient teachers, but there has been a great increase in providing a positive learning environment.
