You will never find a better community of people invested in the health, wellness and success of your child. Wonderful teachers and administrators. Wonderful families. But above all, a truly wonderful COMMUNITY of people.
Cannot name just one. Our children have had several teachers there, and they have all been absolute blessings in the lives of our children. Each and every person. From the classroom, to the office staff, to the aids, to the nurse, to the principal. Top to bottom, left to right. Those people are doing it right.
Absolutely! One strong example is their cross country team, led by the Phys. Ed. teacher, Mr. Blaine. Long distance running requires grit, requires rigor and discipline. Mr. Blaine encourages students to push through perceived boundaries and better themselves. My daughter's self-confidence benefitted immensely from running.
The school is home to a very diverse spectrum of people, both culturally and economically. Students learn from the get-go that people are people, plain and simple. It is beyond just "acceptance"... acceptance is a given. They come in with acceptance, but they leave with understanding and friendship.
My Family just moved here from Cincinnati, OH and so this year , so my daughter was a new student at Colonial Hills Elementary School. She was starting a new school in 6th grade and was extremely nervous. All the teachers, students and parent's were so welcoming. By the time the school year ended, she felt like she was in the school since Kindergarten. The education she received here in one year, was amazing. Her three teachers truly cared about their job and the students, which obviously showed. The music program is top notch and allowed the students to enjoy school more than I believe they normally would. The two plays they put on seemed like high school productions. I am so glad that Colonial Hills still realizes that music is an important part of the students curriculum.
