Harry S. Truman School 5

My daughter loves school at Truman! The teachers and faculty make it a fun and inviting atmosphere for everyone, and there is good parent/teacher communication. We just went to the back to school BBQ and it was great fun to see everyone again. Our daughter has been attending for two years so far, and we have two other family members who have "graduated" at Truman. As far as the other review stating its under-funded....Seriously, blame your legislature, it's a public school funded by taxpayers. Everyone is well aware that the public system could use more money towards education. Or maybe get off your butt and invest yourself into your child's education a bit, instead of blaming everything under the bloody sun. Having said that, i believe this school does a fine job of teaching, both academic and social skills, with the resources they are given. Class size is around 20-25 give or take. But that is typical and we've had no problems with our child learning and excelling. Office staff is always very friendly, too and I feel they go the extra mile to keep students safe. We love school ! :)

terrible!!!!! So under funded!!! My daughter is currently in 1st grade there and her class has 30 kids in it, 3-4 which do not even have their own desk they have to sit at the table. Teachers do not have enough time to help individual students if they are struggling in certain area. Never explain the work enough even for the parents to understand it. Office ladies are extremely rude and terrible manners. They act like you're an idiot for asking them any kind of question or seem annoyed when you go to the office. Like its a burden on their day to assist a parent with anything. I am pulling my kids out next year. I want them to have a proper education and they are certainly not getting here or any of granite school districts schools.

Truman has an excellent staff that work together to help each individual student. The need seems to always exceed the resources however. Our social worker and psychologist are extremely overworked and have to share their time between two or three schools. With abuse on the rise, I find it very difficult when my student's emotional needs are not met at home or at school. We are doing the best we can here, but we need more help from the legislature. We need our psychologist and social worker at our school full time.
