This school is poorly managed. The principal has serious issues. A few teachers are exceptional, but many need training.
my daughter has gone to mount scott for the last 3 years and heading into her 4th year. she absolutely loves it there. the teachers are so great with the kids on an overall level and a personal level. and the principal is very involved throughout the year
I love Mt. Scott Elementary. My son who is 1st grader loves school. This is our first year. My son's first grade teacher (Ms. Pitzl) is super nice.. cares kids so much and also passionate.. great teacher. great community
Our experience with Mt. Scott Elementary has been very, very negative. It has been so bad, we have transferred our child out. I do not recommend this school.
This school is amazing. My son has attended Mt. Scott since kindergarten (he is in 2nd grade now) and my daughter will start there this fall. The entire community is wonderful, from the teachers to the parents. I will be sure to do anything I possibly can to keep both of my children here throughout their elementary education.
This is our first year at Mt Scott. We are currently looking to buy a home and we are being very selective to stay within Mt. Scott's boundaries. My sons 1st grade teacher is AMAZING! She has aloud me to come into the classroom and teach a nutrition program. The PTO is going to allow me to introduce some nutrition curriculum at the next PTO meeting in an effort to implement nutrition education in the classroom. I have also noticed a lot of other parents helping out and getting involved. The school has also received great state scores. We love this school, its great!
My youngest grandson is attending this school, and my oldest grandson attended. They both started out in kindergarden and will finish here. This is a great school with wonderful teachers and wonderful programs. The principal currently is not as hands-on as the last principal, but the teachers and the spirit make up for this one little negative. My grandkids love it.
I love our school. I have volunteered and gone on a ton of field trips. I couldn't believe what some people wrote about our school. I wonder if they ever helped out. I have always felt welcome by parents and teachers. Our state test scores are extremely high. The principal and staff are very accessible.
Great leadership and caring from the Principal to all the staff. They really stress great education and safety.
I have to say I'm completely at a loss by the reviews I just read regarding Mt.Scott Elementary. I've been at Mt. Scott for two years now and absolutely love our school, as well as our principal. She is busy some days, yes, but what principal isn't? She has always been available for me when I have needed her, even when I haven't had an appointment. She might only have a minute or two to spare on certain days, but she has always made me feel that my concerns, thoughts, and my children are extremely important to her! I am proud to have her as my children's principal, as well as extremely proud of the teachers/staff we have at our school. We have wonderful parental involvement and a feeling of family at our school with parents/teachers/staff. Keep up the good work Mt. Scott Elementary! - School volunteer & very involved parent
It almost feels prejudice. Terrible leadership from the principal. We moved out of this area because of this terrible community.
My child has been at this school for a year. Although her teacher and the office staff are friendly, the principal is very detached from the goings on at the school. It's been my experience that one can seldom reach the principal when need be. As far as academics, this school seems to be slow and a bit behind. I've found that the parents aren't friendly when I've attended school functions. I wouldn't recommend this school, in fact, we've decided to either transfer out of this school or try homeschooling.
My child has been here for one year. The teacher is great. However the principal does not handle matters equally and if given a choice I would not recommend this school (academically, or socially) The parents are not friendly or welcoming.
My son has been attending your school for 2 years. He's gone to two other elementary schools before. This is a wonderful school. The location is safe and beautiful. The bus system is great. The teachers are devoted. Lots of parental involvement. Kids learn here!
