This school has been my home away from home for many years. I have volunteered many hours there because it is a great place to be. Very positive with awesome teachers, principal and staff members. Everyone is involved. Our PTA is the best too! This school has been a terrific part of our children's lives. Tons of memories and pictures. Thank you Geneva!

There is a high level of parental involvement at Geneva school and the teachers- for the most part are fantastic. It's the size of the school that's the problem- there are over 600 students. My daughter's third grade class has 28 children- and no aide. My Kinder has 21 children in her class and her teacher also teaches an afternoon class for a total of 40 children to keep tabs on. The four 3rd grade classes have been capped-at 28 and 29 children. 3rd grade children moving into our school's district will be directed to another school but this doesn't solve the huge overcrowding problem that exists.

Geneva has a good staff and good parental involvement. There is not music or art for the lower grades, but there is computer and library in addition to physical education. The PTA provides experiences for students from time to time- science, trips to Mt. Baker Theater and financial support for the foreign language afterschool program (parents still contribute to this). Class size is in the low twenties for the lower grades.

My children are third generation going through Geneva Elementary. You will find several other students who's family or friends attended this school. It is a very welcoming school with wonderful oppurtunities. It has great goals for both school academics and parents and staff involvement. Every grade level is filled with teachers that will help your children not only grow with knowledge but with great respect for others and themselves. These teachers are all very dedicated to their job. You will find that many of the teachers have been with Geneva Elementary for several years. Student teachers who started at Geneva have come back and are now full time teachers here. The prinicpal is very involved with every school function and all students like him very much. They have a shining star program where children earn a shining star by being respectful, helpful, or achieving academic success. I recommend this school highly.

Geneva provides students a safe nurturing environment, but is on a down hill slide academically. Recent math scores from the Iowa Test highlite this recent downward trend. Parents must either hire tutors or teach their children themselves basic math if they plan on the children have success in grades 6-12 and College. The approach to Math at Genava may be benificial to students who might have otherwise been in the bottom 10%-20% in Mathematics. But, unfortunately hinders the growth of most students progress in Math. It appears to me to be a 'No child should get ahead of the others' program. The reading and writing programs on the other hand are outstanding in many ways.
