This school is amazing. My daughter absolutely loves attending each day. The teachers are so caring and motivated to help each child succeed. The principal is enthusiastic, encouraging, and friendly - he somehow seems to remember every child's name AND every parent's name and greets everyone with a smile as they enter the school. The office staff and school nurse is super friendly as well. But most of all, the teachers do their job teaching the students the curriculum - because of them my daughter is doing exceptionally well - she scored very well on her state tests and received excellent grades in all of her classes. We couldn't be more pleased with Independence Elementary!
Indepence is a wonderful school where children become life long learners. I have two children at Independence that are very different learnings. Each child's needs have been met and exceeded. The principle, Mr. Finke and his staff are awesome. The activities and curriculum are top notch. Independence is a school where it is cool to be smart and the spirit of togetherness and pride are felt thoughout the hallways. We are moving out of state and I am so bummed that my children will have to move on. Highly recommend this school. One of the best elementary schools in the Lakota School district.
