The teachers in this school are amazing, but due to the high student to teacher ratio (25:1 not 17) it makes it hard for the children to keep up with the advanced curriculum. The stress my children endure in kindergarten is a bit heartbreaking. Though the teachers are wonderful, the office staff is equally despicable, going so far as to make snide remarks when you walk in late due to a flat tire. Very judgemental. Principle being the rudest one. Be prepared, they chuckle at parents dressed less than perfect. If you don't have perfect blonde hair and a okie prep accent, you will feel distinctly less than...as will your children. If the school were under a different principle, I believe the office would be different and CE would be amazing!

I love this school! The teachers are wonderful. At a recent ceremony they honored classes that had everyone of the students making A's and B's. Again, this was entire classes. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet as well. Great area!

Country Estates is a great school. My oldest daughter went there from K-6th grade and now my youngest daughter is going there. The principal is GREAT also. Mrs. Laakman greets all the children when they are coming in, she also greets the afternoon chilren. She knows all their names. The teachers are also great. You can't go wrong with COUNTRY ESTATES!!

I love this school! We are out of district, but transferred into Country Estates. This school follows the Expectations Curriculum, which advances the children's education while teaching good behavior, rules, responsibility and attitude. I am proud of what my children have learned and am amazed at their courtesy and respect that they show towards everyone, young and old. Mrs Laakman is an excellent principal, I haven't met a teacher I haven't liked and I feel secure knowing my children feel the same way.

This is my daughters second year at CE. The principal is amazing, she is very personable.I love that she is there to greet my daughter (by name) almost every morning when she walks through that door. My daughter has also had two very good teachers that have done amazing work with her. I looked for a long time to buy my first house and the school system was my main concern. I'm happy to say my years of searching paid off! Thanks, CE staff for all you do!

I am very happy with this school! The teachers and Principal are wonderful. I thank god that my kids came from a school that was extremly racist and into a school that loves them and doesn't judge them because of the color of their skin.

We had lived in the Country Estates area. We moved and chose to keep our children at CE. The principal is amazing. She is 'hands on' in every aspect of the school. The teachers care about the students and provide excellent classes.

I have had two children attend CE, and its staff works to assist every child reach his or her potential. Mrs. Laakman is an outstanding role model, not only to the children and parents, but also to her high quality staff. She sets high standards and expectations and then she helps everyone achieve the same. The teachers are wonderful about helping the parents work with the children at home and the home assignments are stimulating and relevant to the classroom tasks. They realize that this won't be the last school, but the first, so the students and parents are prepared for junior high and beyond. We love the caring attitude and quality of education at Country Estates.
