This has been the most amazing and truly outstanding school! Excellent and caring teachers all the way from K-5. Classroom sizes are reasonable at around 25-27 students, so I have always felt that my son was given personalized attention and the education was top notch. My son is very sad to be leaving for middle school next year, as am I!! Our family, and the other families in our neighborhood, absolutely rave about this school. Highly recommend!

I find it interesting that the last few positive reviews were written in within a week of each other. This school is struggling with a lot of parents who do not care about their kids education. Our son last year had 5 of his classmates already on education plans in kindergarten . We moved him to another school that doesn't have as many troubled kids. We are thankful everyday that we moved him

Our family has been at John Tuck Elementary since Fall 2004. We have 2 boys and my youngest is in 5th grade there this year. We LOVE the John Tuck staff and principal. My husband and I have been very involved in the school every year and really enjoy working each of the staff members that we have been able to work with. Our boys have had great experiences at Tuck. The teachers have all been wonderful. It is a family oriented school and a loving environment. Family is very important to the staff at John Tuck. Everyone is very caring. I can't say enough wonderful things about this school.

I have six years experience with John Tuck Elementary. Having two children who attend, I have had the pleasure of knowing all nine of the teachers they have had over the years. Each teacher offering a unique and exciting way of learning. I have been actively involved in my children's education and know the school staff quite well. The staff and teachers make your child's education and safety a top priority, while maintaining an interesting and enriching environment to help kids thrive. Thank you and keep up the good work!

All 4 of my children have attended John Tuck Elementary. I am so pleased with the school and it's staff. I have been on the PTO board and a constant volunteer. I have seen many amazing teachers and have seen the care, love, and time they put into teaching these children, as well as my own. The school has been recently remodeled and updated. It is a beautiful and very well kept building. The principal is kind, and thoughtful. I love to watch the kids come running to greet him. They think he is great! He has always addressed any concerns with much thought and consideration. I my opinion he is always fair. If you are moving to the area or looking to change schools, John Tuck is the way to go! I love this school!

I Love John Tuck! I have two students currently enrolled and four years of experience at the school. We have found the staff to be welcoming and helpful and the teachers qualified as well as interested in the success of my children. My children are happy and typically perform above average on state tests. We have also been satisfied with the response from the principal Mr. Purdue with any issues we have encountered. I feel my children are becoming well rounded people attending John Tuck.

I love John Tuck, I went there as a child, my younger siblings, and now my kids. The building has had a wonderful makeover so its less of a dump, but it still shows its age. But appearances are deceiving because it is staffed with amazing teachers and support staff. The only reason I left one star off is because I think Oregon State curriculum is a bit laxed, not really the schools fault, but it still factors in. I feel that my kids are loved and cared for which at an elementary level is very important.

Both of my children have attended John Tuck K-5. This is a great school! The office staff, the pricipal and the teachers are very caring and giving people. Both of my children have had nothing but good experiences at John Tuck. I believe children need to be held accountable for poor choices and good choices celebrated, both of these things happen at John Tuck. Education is important to me and my children, it starts in th home and continues in the classroom, I have not been disappointed with any of the teachers at John Tuck. I think it is important to note that educators are human, they need positive support just as parents do. Education is a partnership between the school, the child and th parent. All parties involved must be accountable for their peice of the puzzle. For those parents talking about bullying, I think Its important to talk to your child, under stand all sides. What part did they have in the behavior? Bullying is something that can happen anywhere not just schools. Parents teach your children to be respectful and kind in all avenues of life. As I said before, I think John Tuck is a great school!

Bullying is a very big issue in this school with no real control. The principal is out of touch with what really happens in the school playground, and appears to not respond in a positive way to the child being bullied. Victims of bullies tend to get treated badly with retaliation for going to a teacher for help, being told they are "whiny", and then considered trouble makers themselves for attempting to ward off bully attacks, that occur to often in this school. The Redmond school district needs to take a closer look at why the victims of bullies become the aggressors, because their teachers, and principal, treat them that way. There are many new laws that have taken effect due to the rising rates of bullies, to protect the child being bullied, and to the principal and teachers responsibility to a safe environment for their students. Missing a recess because you physically attacked someone is not enough. It only makes a bully madder at his victim, and retaliation occurs under the principals watch. John Tuck's staff needs to be aware of CHAPTER 57 a revised act section 1, 2 and 3. Relating to hostile education environment, because this school is worse than they think.

Both of my boys went to school at John tuck, one was in kindergarten and the other was a first grader here. I hated every minute sending them to this school. My youngest son has super bad asthma and pnomnia and ended up missing so much school. His teacher didn't send anythng home for us to be practicing or make up work. For this reason he fell very far behind and they passed him anyways. And not to mention the principle there is just incompatent and doesn't know how to do his job at all. This school has the potential to excell if they had a better principle and a better teaching staff

John Tuck is an ever growing school it has a diverse community and needs parent support to develop any fundraisers or after school programs. It seems many parents are too busy to participate in thier child's classroom so John Tuck is exploring ways to get parents to participate. I like John Tuck because of the friendly atmosphere and open attitude of the facalty

not the best school in redmond by far. my son was also labeled a trouble maker like the other reviewer. this year his teacher seems to be a much better teacher and have a better relationship with the students and more patience. I am still waiting to see how my daughters kindergarten teacher will be.

As with many schools, John Tuck has a wide variety of teachers. Our daughter has an awesome teacher this year! She has improved in all areas, while still getting plenty of time and encouragement to continue excelling in reading. Our son does not have such a fine teacher. She is discouraging, and although our son is very bright and tries very hard to please, he was labeled a 'trouble maker' from the first day. Screen your students teachers before the school year begins! This school has the best and the worst kind of teachers.
