My school is Colonial Elementary School. My great-granddaughter is a 3rd grade student there. She seems happy at school and with her teachers. She is a good student. I have seen their curriculum on line and have seen some of my great-granddaughters school work. It seems extremely well presented and able to teach the children to achieve high levels of learning. I am glad my "little girl" is going to this charter school

Because the staff care about the kids. They educate them far more than I was when we went there. The community at the school pull together when there is a need. Example deaths, and house fires, children in need.

The most caring and organized principal I have ever been associated with. That caring definitely filters down to the teachers and in return to the children. My son has never enjoyed school until attending Colonial Elementary

Colonial is the best school and its all because of the people - students, teachers, parents, other staff, and volunteers. The people all pull together no matter what is happening. They make things work! And we have fun doing it. What an environment to come to every day.

One of the resaons I love Colonial is because the entire staff (not just the teachers) are all there for our kids. The teachers educate on more than just 'book leaning'. The support staff (even the bus drivers) help to mold our kids into great people.

My daughter is a third grader at Colonial (2008-09 school year) and we are very pleased with the administration and teaching quality and that of the parent involvement from reading nights to keeping up the landscaping. Special praise for the great communication. Mrs. Riggs makes great use of 'phone tree' to keep parents abreast of school delays, closings, special nights, etc. There is appropriate use of email communication in addition to the regular print copies that come home in back packs. Colonial is an older facility that is scheduled for replacement within a few years but until then the staff has done a fabulous job working within a grand old building! Thanks staff!

My daughter attended Colonial 2004-2005 and part of 2005-2006. Mrs. Riggs (Principal) and Mrs. Camp (Asst. Principal) are great! The office staff is welcoming and friendly. The teachers are easily accessible, even during the day via e-mail. The school welcomes and encourages parent involvement! They even have a Family Reading Night once a month where they open the school to families who want to read with their children and take AR tests (sometimes even providing dinner!) We miss Colonial and are sorry to say that our daughter's new school has not been so easy to work with.
