My children have received an amazing, well-rounded education at Estes. Their classes are differentiated, challenging and engaging. Solid leadership and amazing array of extra curricular activities.

I love how dedicated teachers and staff are. there was no single day my children didn't want to go to school and it's already November ;) I also really like how handicapped children are integrated.

I would agree most teachers are good, but there are a few who believe in punitive punishment for elementary school kids. It is shameful that a few rotten ones can put a blemish on an otherwise great school, with a great principal and vice principal.

My daughter started Estes in November when we relocated to Asheville. As most parents, we reviewed test scores and all of the statistics. Estes performs well on standardized testing, but I am most impressed with the nurturing school environment. Everybody is so caring and positive! Instead of 'yelling' at students to look in the lost in found, the administrators and teachers put on a 'fashion show' for the students using clothes from the lost and found. (Everybody was laughing.) That is just one example of how this school uses positive reinforcements on a daily basis to get the best from their staff and students!

Class size needs to be smaller. There are 24 students in my childs class with one teacher and one aide. I believe that all children would be better served with a 12 to 2 ratio.
