Was not very impressed with this school. The teachers seem willing to try and extremely new and inexperienced. The front desk needs an overhaul. Totally detest seeing the front desk staff who are anything but friendly. Especially the one we encountered. I think she is Brandi. She needs a lesson on people skills. She will smile at her select families. The rest of us get the cold shoulder. Glad this school was temporary and we will be in our zoned school next school year.

Sadly, our family has had some less than professional experiences with members of the staff at Sem Elementary. We are sorely disappointed.

Sem Elementary has a highly qualified group of teachers. They have high expectations and find time to foster each child's creativity. I like that they use a lot of hands on activities for learning. And as an elementary teacher myself I feel good about the education that my kids are receiving.

Sem has some of the best teachers and staff! My son is confident and is being well prepared for the future! I moved outside of school boundaries and I drive my son every day even though there are two closer to me. Why compromise on quality when you can get to the best? Sem is definitely the best!

Our experience at SEM has been encouraging. The teachers and administration care about the kids and put a lot of time and effort into lesson planning and delivery of lessons. (As a former teacher--I thoroughly appreciate this.) The kids are happy to come to school and leave feeling loved! My son lives with Asperger's Syndrome, and as such, has special needs in the classroom. His classroom teacher has been phenomenal and the support staff is amazing. I'm pleased with how well the transition to a new grade level has gone this year. While both the Principal and Assitant Principal are new this year, they are dedicated and enthusiastic. They love kids. As a member of the PTA, I must say that the President is beyond GREAT. She is welcoming and helpful and always puts the students first. Great things are happening at this fantastic school; I love SEM!

New leadership has Sem going in the right direction. After meeting with the principal and ap I know that they are setting the stage for a positive, caring, learning environment.

We have been at Sem since it opened and love the teachers the administrators and everyone in between. The new Principal and Vice Principal are such a wonderful addition to the SEM family. My 2 children cant wait for Monday morning to go to school. The teachers have such creative and fun ways to teach the children its amaizing to see how much my children learn every week.The open communication between parent teacher and administraion is refreshing. The PTA truly cares for the students and staff and the PTA board works dilligently at getting the school to work together. I look foward to having all my children attend SEM in the years to come. Its a great neighborhood to live in with a great school.

This is my child's second year at Sem and the experience has been fair. On the surface evrything appears wonderful but in actuality it's not as perfect as it seems. The asst principal is often very rude to parents and some of the teachers do not have have a great classroom demeanor. However, the PTA does a lot for the children regarding activities.

An excellent school. I am amazed at what my son has learned so far in Kindergarten. The teachers, principle, and staff are great. I really love how connected my son's teacher stays with the parents. How also like how they have approached discipline issues. I can't say enough about this school.:)

Being a new school under the leadership of a first time Principal is a challenging job but with all determination, hardwork and team spirit the teachers and students have proved that they are the best. Go Team Sem!

As a first year school with a first year principal, I am thrilled with what I have soon. the teachers are awesome, my youngest loves going to school and my oldest is challeneged. My only concern is the rigidness that the administration uses. I realize they have alot to prove as a first year school, but they are doing amazingly well.
