Knight School is an exciting place for students. The teachers are caring and dedicated. I like the welcoming atmosphere. The rating of 7 is too low for this amazing school.

My child loved her teacher Ms. Gallagher last year. She was strict, fair, and funny and had high expectations that her students must learn organizational skills and structure.

Sometimes it seems the principal can be inconsistent with consequences which can be confusing when there isn't a clear behavior policy. However, students are treated with respect and understanding.

My daughter attends Kindergarten here. we are so pleased with the way her year has gone. There are some amazing teachers that have dedicated themselves to Knight and it is such a great community. I also feel like there isn't a 'great divide' with our spanish speaking population. This is truly an involved and evolved community school.

William Knight does a great job educating the masses. Canby has a 30% hispanic population. Which means that many children in school speak english as a second language or their parents may not speak it at all. It affects the number of parents able to volunteer, and the money available to PTA sponsored programs. The teachers are dedicated and focused on teaching the students, regardless of their background. They use their resouces carefully. I have been pleased with the quality of education my children recieved. All the teachers we had were talented at their jobs. The children learned, and had an encouraging environment

Knight Elementary is well known in Clackamas County for it's excellent reading and math programs that meet the needs of all students whether they are high ability, special needs, another language learner or need any other type of special program. All it's teachers are caring, intelligent people, who work above and beyond their call of duty to make sure that all their students are successful. I have seen many students blossom under the professional, loving tutoring of these teachers. A child would be fortunate to be part of this outstanding academic atmosphere!
