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.
My daughter loves this school and the teachers. I as parent love the very involved, caring and dedicated teachers. They make the students of all races feel welcome and liked. The school is clean and nice.
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!
