The teachers and staff are really caring. They try hard to make sure your child gets the individual attention that he needs. The class size is small and we had a terrific experience with Salina elementary. We moved to an exemplary school in Texas (rated a 9 on this web site) halfway through the school year and my son was ahead of his class. It is really important that they teachers in the early grades make learning and school fun and they do a good job of that here.
