My daughter attended part of kindergarten, first grade and most of second grade at Minnesauke. I was extremely impressed with her second grade teacher but felt her first grade teacher was very out of touch with her students. I felt completely shut off from the school as a parent. The administration and office staff were distant and simply allowed little to no parent involvement. When considering this school, please keep that in mind. This is not a place where you will be welcomed or encouraged to participate in your child's education. Having moved out of the state, I truly feel the 'hype' of this district and the tax rate are completely unjustified.
Having been a student myself in the school and having friends in various districts around the island I know that minesauke is a top notch elementary school devoted to giving our youngsters the heads up in learning they need for today's world. There is a great teamwork feel in both the staff and student body.i am so glad to see things over the past 20 years since i went here have not changed that much and i look forward to having my children enjoy their elementary education as much as i did.--allison marcellino
