I'm so happy with the teachers and the staff at Sacajawea. I have two kids at this school and I'm also very involved with the school.

Sacajawea is an AMAZING school. Everyone from the staff to the parents, the teachers to the students does their part to create a positive, empowering environment. The school has changed my life for the better and I will continue to volunteer there long after my daughter graduates high school!!

Mix of teachers some outstanding and others average. My daughter went to school there for a couple of years and is a stellar student. One teacher was awesome the next just used her mainly as an assistant while helping the others catchup. The year my daughter graduated not one student made it into VSAA, a desirable school that is difficult to get into. Compare this to Felida had 9 students and Chinook had 8 and even Rosevelt elementary had 7 students accepted into VSAA. This info based on 2010 provided by VSAA. The only other elementary with no representation was Fruit Valley Elementary out of 21 elementary schools in the Vancouver School district. I hope this helps your search for the best elementary. I wish I had this info.

The Headstart program aids are pretty bad. The class doesn't even work on the alphabet. If you enroll your child in this Headstart program they will get really proficient at coloring.

Great staff. They show me that they do care about my children education and future. I like how they care about bullying and that there is great communication between staff and parents.

My daughter has been at Sacajawea for five years. The teachers are exceptional, everyone of them, Mrs. Janati is an outstanding principal, and Molly is the best. We are going to miss Sacajawea next year. My daughter is leaving for Junior High. Each member of this staff has made these most memorable years, some of the best times of our life. Thank you. Wayne and Brenda Higdon

The principal,teachers and office staff help children thrive at Sacajawea Elementary! They adapt the daily lessons to their students learning needs. They do an awesome job making learning fun for kids and invite families to participate in their children's education and in special school events. They also teach the children self-manager tasks: how to give best efforts with schoolwork, how to respect others, demonstrate how to work with partners and groups, reward the children for improvements and achievements.

I have three grandchildren attending and have been to a few functions and was impressed with the order of things as well as a great staff.

Sacajawea is absolutely the best school. I can't say enough about the staff, they are just the greatest set of people you will ever meet. They are all there not only to educate our children academically, but also to help our children become socially aware. They are taught to accept and respect everyone including themselves. There is not one person I can think of from the principle to the teachers, front desk ladies to the librarian to the PTA; they are all committed to making the kids a well rounded student. I wish I could list each person I have had the pleasure to come in contact with at this school that I think deserve special recognition, but there are just too many to list!!

We love Sacajawea because it is a safe, fun place for my child to learn and grow. Sacajawea feels like a family and not a school, they make my child want to come to school everyday and learn.

Sacajawea has encouraging teachers that are full of patience. The teachers and staff seem to love their job which is reflected in their performance. They portray that joy when they work with the kids. My children are energized and encouraged by simply being apart of this positive environment.

Our school rocks!!!! The morale and enthusiasm that fill the halls of this school, are phenominal. The teachers/educators are all so committed to the education of our kiddos. My kids thoroughly enjoy the community at SAC and as a parent, I couldn't think of a better place for my children's to acquire their education.

You are greeted with big smiles and a warm feeling, but after two years of mismanaged events and stressed teachers I think the administration needs to be refined. It is clear the principal is new. Many parents are involved yet are frustrated in volunteering with poor instruction. The teachers seem overwhelmed. Class sizes are fairly large. Students are expected to behave at levels too mature for the age group. Recess is often restricted to indoor quiet activity due to poor weather, not allowing a healthy break. They use a green, yellow, red system and many monthly rewards that begin to separate the children rather than promote positive results. All academics in Kindergarten and First Grade were behind the other local elementary schools, these are run by specialists, not the teachers. There is a lot of extracurricular activity that could be cut out to allow catch up time on reading and math.

The teachers try very hard but have a difficult economic mix to contend with. The principal is new and supports her teaching staff well.

We just moved here last year from out of state and have been very impressed with this school. The principal is fantastic and there is a very high regard to helping children achieve their highest potential, especially in the upper grades. Vancouver is known for it's great school, and Sacajawea definitely measures up.
