Krueger Elementary School is the BEST - top notch teachers & administrators!! Both of my boys are having great experiences in school, both socially & academically. The Spec Ed Department is terrific, their dedication to my child in all areas of his life has made a huge difference in his attitude & grades!

My daughter has attended this school from kindergarten. She has had great, dedicated teachers every year. They are very responsive to emails and phone calls. I've visited often to discuss my her performance and asked for suggestions on books etc. she has thrived and her grades are stellar. I couldn't have asked more.

Really great school, My son attended 2-5th grades her and I think that the strong foundation and support he had while he attended school here are still benefiting him to this day. He is now in 8th grade and takes all AP courses with straight "A" average. My daughter attends 5th grade here and loves it. She is constantly encouraged and praised for her hard work. Most of the kids here are well behaved and come from good homes. A few trouble makers but the school is swift on addressing those issues

I love Krueger ES! The pre-k teacher and my son's current kindergarten teacher are AMAZING. Also, the school has a real sense of community about it. Everyone from the Vice Principal and the advisers to the Music teacher and the janitorial staff know my son by name. It makes me feel good to know that my kid is important to the teachers, faculty, and staff. Love this school!

This school has a fantastic music teacher and she totally knocks herself out for the kids. During Public school week they put on a show called Pirates and it was very professionally done. My daughter loves going to music and she has learned so much. I hope this music teacher will still be there when my son starts school next year.

The principal, teachers, and staff are great, but I have been very disappointed with the parent involvement. The school festival was cancelled due to lack of volunteers so they could try it a different time of year in the future to see if it does better. And it is like pulling teeth to try and get help with class parties and PTA meeting attendance is low.

My daughter just started this year after transferring from a private school and she is doing great!! The teachers and Administration are great. I love all the parent involvement and the teacher's optimistic attitude. I didn't know that life after private school could be this good for my child. The technology is so much better at public school. The ability for a child to take an AR test on the computer is huge!!! I totally reccommend this school to everyone.

I like the school and, more importantly, my daughter likes the school. She feels safe, challenged and comfortable which is so important to desired learning outcomes. Any school may have drawbacks and I feel the staff at Krueger does a great job of rising to any and all challenges. My sincere appreciation to all staff including kitchen, maintenance and custodial personnel.

I love this school, we are military and have been to 2 other school since my daughter started kindergarten here. I miss the staff and people of this school and town. They care about the kids, the teachers, principle and staff know the kids by name. The extracurricular goes way beyond expected. They teach the kids how to get along with eachother and how to work as a team. Can't say enough great things about this school. Krueger Rocks!

I think kindergarten teachers at Krueger are awesome. My son is definitely being challenged without a doubt. My daughter is at Krueger also and she too is being challenged. The school is crowded but everyone is extremely organized and there is an outstanding staff this year.

Posted September 28, 2007

Good overall, but still having growing pains in their 3rd year. Kinder doesn't challenge the kids at all. And my 5th grader has had a various subs for 3 of the 5 weeks of school so far. These things certainly do not bode well for the positive outcome at the end of the year. On the upside, the staff is friendly and parents are very involved. I think everyone means well.

This is our 4th elementary and we love the school. We move alot and we love the area here and the staff. The school is over crowed.

Principal is fantastic, but I wouldn't recommend the Vice Principal to my worst enemy. I pick up my child and get along great with many of the teachers. Many of the educators go above and beyond, but with poor administrative support, I have considered pulling my son out. Parents shouldn't run the school regardless if it is a bond time or not. Administrators run the school. They are educated to do so, not the parents.
