We loved this school and were sad to leave. The teachers were always caring and open to communication. The administration was always on top of things and even know the kids by name!

This is a great school. My children (K5 & 3rd grade) excelled at Zeiger and we really miss it after relocating. Wish we could bring the school with us! Office staff treats you like family and you are never a bother to them, whether you are or not. :) Great teachers who are kind to students and work hard to see them excell in their school work. You can walk the halls of this school and see by the time spent on bulletin boards and hanging up art work that the staff cares about their students. This is how every school should operate. Huge round of applause!!!

Both my boys attend this school. One is in first grade, the other is 4 and in their special needs AM program. this school got my youngest son who has speech apraxia and only talking with only a few words. They had him speaking sentences within 3 months. Which was a huge deal to our family. He still has a very long road ahead with speech and sensory yet I trust this school SO much with both of my sons. The staff is so friendly and they all do their jobs right and put your child first. No wonder why they are a school of excellence. I am reluctant to ever move from this school for fear I won't find one that meets my current standards.

Love, love, love this school! As a military family, I was concerned with my child's integration into the school. Found Zeiger to be very warm and friendly along with meeting my child's needs both emotionally and academically. Lots of opportunity for parental involvement and extra curricular activities for the children. Will be sad to leave the school when we have to move.

What a great school! My son has attended Zeiger for 2 years and we are very happy with it. Mr. Brouillet, the principal, is a wonderful leader. The teachers are warm, caring and competent. This school has a strong PTA program and heavy parent involvement which means lots of extra opportunities for the kids and staff. While no situaltion is 100% perfect all the time, overall our family has had a very positive experience at Zeiger Elementary.

I am in love with this school. Im very upset that I have to leave next year. I belive that the students are all very bright people and I really adore the teachers and the staff. Everybody is so kind, all of the students even know the janitors name! We learn to be kind to everyone early on.

My kids loved this school when they were there, but when we moved north their new school determined that not one of them was reading at grade level. No one at Zeiger had ever mentioned that to me as an issue. They all talked about how nice the kids are. It's my job to instill manners, it's the schools job to TEACH.

The Zeiger school has really made progress in their reading and currently math programs. The reading program is much better and the math program is no longer just photo copies of several different booklets. They have invested in a curriculum for the students that is fun. They also divide students into groups so they can progress and learn at their level with 4 different math groups per grade.

My daughter has had a great learning experience through her year in kindergarten. The staff is friendly, encouraging and communicate very well. Every day my daughter comes home from school, I am amazed at what she has learned.

This school is GREAT! my 3 children went there. Sammy loved it! Great thanks to Mrs.williomson. (sorry if i spelled it wrong) She was very good. Now Sammy is at Firgrove and she hates it. Eveyone should go here and not there. its horrible. Here at Zeiger eveyone is treated the same respectfully. I love it there and i hope Sammy can come to Zeiger in the year.

I think Brian Fox is a tremendous principal! He is definitely kid-oriented, always talking to them with respect - and always maintaining control of them in assemblies and such with greatness! I feel lucky that my two children are able to attend this fine school. Also - this school has a wonderful deaf and hard of hearing program! I love the fact that those children are treated as equals, and are not treated 'special' just because of their needs - they are treated as equals, and I love that. This school has made my children become better children because of this program.

Four of my six kids grew up in Zeiger, and we always loved the school while we were there. Last year we moved to Bellevue, to a wonderful school district. Come to find out, three of my girls could barely read and one was two full grade levels behind. No one at Zeiger had ever done anything about it, just threw up their hands and told us the kids were 'so nice.'

This school is horrible. It looks nice because it's new, but the way students are treated by the teachers is horrible. The only time I've heard more sarcasm is in a Seinfeld show. I don't think kids need to be demeaned in that way. I took my child out after watching her self-esteem diminish to nothing. She never learned any new skills and would make up some excuse or another not to go to school. I wrestled with the decision until this last incident. I went to pick her up after school and was told my daughter was reported absent. My husband took her to school that morning. Come to find out she was in the classroom the whole time, but the damage had been done. Who watches my child when she's in school? I was told she is so quiet she gets missed. In a classroom of 16 children?

I've had children attending this school for 3 years now. My initial impression of the school was very positive, but after being a semi-involved mom with the school PTA and a helper in the classroom I must confirm that this is an excellent school. Teaching styles have really changed over the years and its definitley for the better. Kudos need to go to the dedicated principal and staff at Zeiger Ele. Thank you for a wonderful, safe, fun, and cooperative place for my children to be educated at.
