Excellent teachers and programs. More time should be given for students to eat lunch.

My son was very advanced for his age and this school did not accommodate they were teaching spelling word like 'it' in 3rd grade! Also when he was threatened by other students they didn't handle it appropriately

Although I am not a parent,I do have a newphew who attends Audubon. I love this school, as a child I attended this school and have fond memories of the teachers and my childhood. As a teacher, I know how hard the staff continually works to make the environemnt friendly for everyone. I also know the countless hours of meetings, and preparation that is continually going on behind the scenes at Audubon. At Audubon you will find teachers and staff who will work their hardest to provide your child with the best education. I would not have my nephew attend school here if I didnt believe in how wonderful this school is. High test scores dont prepare you for the real world, but learning in a caring, safe environment does, and thats what Audubon is all about.

Both of my children love their school, their principal, and their teachers. I am extremely pleased with the academic, physical and social education my children are receiving at Audubon. Roadrunners is an especially positive after-school activity which promotes health-for-life and even invites parents to join their kids. My family loves Audubon!

this is a great school. The school is very family oriented with a great open door policy to parents. Is a great place for kids to go . All five of my kids have gone there or going there right now. The teachers and support staff are great.

Currently we are going through Audubon with our Third child. I love the fact that the school supplies the school supplies. We pay one small fee at the beginning if the year and the chikdren are set, I personally feel that not having to go shopping for supplies in the endless giant lines is great. The staff at the school is amazing, They have handled every problem we have ever had with tact and efficiency. The teaching staff really cares about the children and often go above and beyond to see to thier needs. Mr. Baerlocher is an awesome principal who has gained the respect of parents and students alike. In a couple of years my fourth child will be attending Audubon, we are confident that they will do a great job then as well.

Audubon has some very good teachers and has made great improvements academically. There is very little parental participation at this school. One thing I do not like is that you must pay your childs teacher for school supplies rather than being able to provide your own. There is a nice computer room and library but extra events are few and far between. No christmas program which is sad I think.

I think my Son has gotten a great academic education but has had instances with threats of violence and I felt the school dod not handle correctly. I also feel not enought sports are offered but the ones that are were a great experience for him. Parent involvement is below average.

My daughter always comes home from School very excited! She wants her School to be the best it can be! When you ask her what she would like to do, the answer is always the same. I want to go to school, right now! I say to the Principal & Staff to 'Keep up the good work! Thank you for caring!

Audubon is a wonderful school to teach every student everything in every aspect. My son will be going to the same school I went to when I was his age, and it is so wonderful that he can experience the same thing I did. Audubon is such a great school not only because of the education they teach our children but the love and joy they bring to their faces! I know my son will love it there just as much as I did. Go Audubon Eagles, keep up the good work!

I absolulutely loved this school. My son went here first through third. I am a very involved parent and found the principal to be fair and kind. The teachers were enthusiastic about the children's potential and did everything possible to find their niche. Thank you Audubon for giving my son the strong foundation and love of learning he will need to succeed.
