I feel blessed to live in this school district. John Hole is a phenomenal school with a phenomenal staff and amazing programs just waiting for students to tap into. I have two children there currently. They are learning and growing in an environment that helps each individual with their specific needs. Did you know that programs that started as experiments at John Hole Elementary have been picked up nationally? I couldn't be more impressed by the quality of education my children are receiving.

I just entered my child in JH Elem. after transferring from another district. While staff was cordial, it was certainly not above and beyond and I was very disappointed for my second grader who was having to start a new school. A little extra warmth would have made all the difference. Walked into the classroom and she was passed off to another student as the teacher had somewhere else to be. The principle seems less than excited to be there, honestly. Like I said, cordial, but nothing special. There is a fine line between those there "doing their job" and those there because they really want to make a difference in children's lives. I would give this school a C- based upon today's "first" day, which is a big day, in my opinion. I thought about complaining, but what would I say...."hey, you didn't give my kid the attention...".. I mean I would be labeled for the rest of the school year.

I've been a John Hole parent for 15 years. My youngest child just finished 5th grade. In all our years there, my children have been happy and successful and have gone on to continued success in middle school, high school and college. We've never had a teacher we didn't like, though many of them have been tough with high expectations. Still, all my kids have very fond memories of their years at John Hole. What more can you ask for?

My son attended John Hole last year and I was very impressed with the Principle and All staff.The school was caring and concerned for my son who needed a lot of help coming from another school district that wasn't so good. I would recommend this school to anyone who is very involved and particular about their child's education.

We were very impressed with the principal, Mr. Miller. More hands-on activities would be good (but kids everywhere are having to be 'taught to the test.')

This is a great school with dedicated teachers and nice kids. My daughter came from a private school and the education that she has received at John Hole is as good as what she received at her former school.

John Hole is a world class school, they get the best of the kids. The ESL is outstanding thanks to Mrs Morrison. I feel that the parent Involvement is 99.99%. No sports inside school, but you will get directions for everything outisde school (Football, soccer, baseball, etc). The academics programs are so complete and the teachers really know how to do their jobs. Mr. Miller is a man who really cares about the school and also for every single child. Proffessional work 100%.

Our family has been with Dr. John Hole for four years and overall our experience has been disappointing. We came from an excellent school district (#20) in Colorado Springs and, unfortunately, there is a huge discrepancy in the schools' curriculum. As a result, we have had to supplement our children's education with additional schoolwork at home. Though there are those on staff who are outstanding and strive to make a difference, they are in the minority. In short, we believe that the school could use a major overhaul, starting with the curriculum, but also to include hiring new staff who truly enjoy and want to work with children - as we have also had problems with unfriendly, disinterested teachers who do not communicate effectively with parents. Centerville reportedly has some of the best schools in the state, but in our opinion, Dr. John Hole does not reflect that.
