I honestly am some what disappointed in the school. I relocated my family to afton specifically because of the school. I had heard great reviews, small class room sizes etc. upon arrival of the elementary and after enrolling my son I learn that he will be put into a class room with 40 other children. The size just continued to grow throughout the year. He would come home at least once a week and say that a new kid was in his class now. This was a serious issue for me as my son is disabled and requires a little more attention than most. I was assured this wouldn't be a problem and he would be top priority. I have been blessed enough to be home with him daily up until time of starting school so yes I worked extra hard with him so he would not be behind starting school. When the teachers continue to tell you he knows every thing they are doing in class etc. it kind of makes you wonder what are they doing for him? Are they challenging him? I was just displeased with that aspect of it.I do not have a teaching degree and do not plan on having so will I have to continue to do this throughout all his life because the teachers do not know how to teach my son? I was just very mislead as far as the environment and teachers. To think I moved to this nothing town for my son's education....

Not the best I had hoped for. My son is lacking structure in the classroom because of class size.

I needed to add one thing. I really would like to see the scool to encourage our kids to be envolved all around. I do not feel they should be made to choice between music or sports. I think the music program would greatly bennifit if kids would not have to choose. My husband and I both have agreed that we want are kids to be well rounded. If they want to do music and sports we would pay for private lessons for music. This does not limit them and they can try both.

My children attend this school, am really pleased with the education they are getting. I like the smaller classroom and there one on one attention they get. They are willing to help each and every one. The community is very much involved with the school activities. I encouraged families with children to send their children there. I have had many chances to move but have not do to the quality of the school system.

The educational quality of Afton Elementary is extremely disappointing. I am glad to say my child is transferring to a quality school this fall.
