Two of my children have attended Sodus Elementary and I think the school does a nice job. The staff is both caring and well educated and they offer help to those that need it.

I graduated from this school, now my son attends. Although I followed the ratings posted on this site, I decided to give Sodus the benefit of the doubt. I am not impressed. I do not get a sense of teamwork with is teacher and the school has done little to maximize my son's educational experience. He is bored and the work they do is redundant. He has had one field trip. The school board is unimpressive - washing over, little listening. They are talking about possibly consolidating buildings in the district and cramming more students into a small, outdated building. The spending per pupil show where their priorities lie. We'll be moving. Taxes are high in Sodus and the town has nothing to offer. Not angry, just sadly dissappointed. They need to start over.

I went to this school starting in fifth grade and continuing through my senior year. Overall it is a good school. Teachers are dedicated and generally very good. Some kids are very difficult though
