Both of my kids have attended Suquamish for the AGATE program in North Kitsap School District. This is the only school they can attend to be in the program, and it has served them well for several years now. They are challenged to the point of limitation, which is where every student anywhere should be operating. I have little to complain about with this school. We have moved a lot being military, and I think this school is at least as good as the others in CA and WA they have attended. The local tribe contributes a lot of money for excellent field trips and programs, including a four day trip to IslandWood on Bainbridge for the 5th grade class.

My son started first grade this year at Suquamish and is very happy. He attended a Montessori school for preschool and kinder. The transition was seemless as the class seems to have a similar model. The students and families are very diverse both culturally and socio-economically. The teachers and administration have been open to concerns and questions we have had and are very proactive in seeking out new programs to enrich the school and meet kids' emotional and educational needs. Overall, as a family, we all feel we have made a great choice with Suquamish and are looking forward to helping the community grow.

My special education child was made to feel as if he did not "belong" at this school. His teacher said as much, even though his preschool felt he was more than ready for a mainstream classroom. We switched to another public school and have been much happier and the atmosphere definitely feels more welcoming. He was apparently ready for a general education classroom as he is thriving at his new school! Sadly Suquamish could not see past my son's disability. For shame.

We have two girls in this school and they are having a wonderful experience. I am not sure what the other reviewer is referring to regarding teacher cliques and that they become threatened (and unethical??), this hasn't been our experience at all. When we have concerns, we raise them and the teachers and staff have been very supportive. I think in this age group, having a great group of teachers that care makes a huge difference. The school is small but that's great as everyone knows everyone else teachers, parents and students). The school does have diversity (both ethnic and income) but i feel this is great for the education and social development of kids. The other great program offered is the advance learning program (AGATE) for students who want to excel. Like many school, I think there are some parents that are more engaged than others but the school does seem receptive of in-class parent participation ( another +).

Suquamish Elementary is one of the best schools in the North Kitsap School District. The teachers in this school are very passionate about their work and the children. The Principle, Mr. Torgerson is committed to excellence in education, teacher collaboration, parent involvement and community involvement. Being closely tied to the Suquamish Tribe provides such a wonderfully unique experience for children.

A lot of young teachers that seem to be in some kind of clique...and yes, they LOVE the children and families that are docile. Throw some kids or parents their way that challenge them to be better teachers and they become threatened and even unethical. I have witnessed one too many adults bullying children at this school.

Fantastic school! Mr. Davalos, office staff, counselor, teachers and all other staff are top notch. My daughter began going mid year and she was anxious that no one would know her. Her first day of school as we walked in she was greeted by name by Mr. Davalos, the greeter at the door, the counselor...she had a parade of people to bring her into the Suquamish family. I truly believe the leadership of this school makes it stand out!

This school has answered my prayers, My children are happy, they enjoy learning, the parents and teachers are happy to see me and my children every morning and afternoon. I could not have created a better place for my children to learn. Thank you to the staff at Suquamish Ele. You have created the perfect learning atmosphere.

The principal, Mr. Davelos, is exceptiional and sets the stage for a cooperative work environment for the teachers and a positive, happy learning atmosphere for the kids. This is a friendly school where the principal and office staff greet every child by name (and even the parents too). As with every school, some teachers are better than others but everyone seems cheerful and glad to be there.

The school is focused on teaching the kids more then just fundamentals. There is activity night, reading night, and education / resource night. The parents and teachers all seem 'on-board' with interactive communication and activity and I am impressed with the support the community offers!

My only concern is the fact that 'rumors' interfere with the education process a little more then I am comfortable with and that the kids seem to be the center of adult popularity contests.

Great school. The main focus here is reading. We have a family fun reading night where parents and kids have a free dinner and go home with at least 2 books. This happens once every month.
