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.

Grateful to: Teacher

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.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

The teachers are often challenged with students for whom this is their first time in ANY formal school, not just THIS school. They are asked to do more than many teachers, and do so with less.

Amount of homework: Just right

The amount of homework is consistent with the age and abilities of the grades. Ramping-up as they "ramp-up".

Develops grit: Strongly agree

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.

Develops respect: Strongly agree

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.

The school rewards good behavior. Positivity and compassion is not only expected, but is also celebrated.

They have many programs specifically aimed at ensuring students are responsible, honest, and exhibit "Cougar Pride".

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.

A fantastic school serving an equally fantastic neighborhood. A true community school walking distance from most of the neighborhoods 700 homes.
