Responsive administration, hard-working teachers, staff, and PTA. Overcrowding should improve by 2017-18 with NSD's plan of grade reconfiguration and boundary adjustments.

Going downhill fast :(. All the good teachers are leaving. It used to be great, but now it's more about test scores and how to accommodate the rapid growth. No new infrastructure with increased enrollment, just throw another portable in there. No accountability, just excuses. More concern for teacher contracts than the kids.

Just teaching to the test. One by one, the good teachers are leaving to get away.

Just another public school. Nothing great. Some good teachers and some on auto pilot. Same old administrative bureaucracy. Parents have no say, except of course when there is a fundraiser to run or contribute to. And this website is outdated, there are well over 700 kids at Kokanee now.

Kokanee is a great elementary school with a wonderful teaching staff and involved PTA. There is an extensive range of after school activities available. My child is having a wonderful elementary experience and I know it is giving her a strong foundation for when she moves on to middle school. Previous comments speak of overcrowding, this applies to all Northshore district schools not just Kokanee. We are overcrowded because everyone wants the education that Northshore district provides. 2017 brings new boundary adjustments, moving 6th grade to middle school and a new high school which will help alleviate the higher class sizes.

Amount of homework: Too much

Depends, but definitely not consistent from grade to grade or year to year. No coordination to ensure staying within a 10 minute per grade per night limit (which is the HIGH end of what studies show is useful).

No, determination might make someone better and that isn't fair. It's better if everyone is just average.

It tries, but kids are smart - they know there isn't much caring for them from the adults at the school, so hard to overcome that with a few prizes each month.

The school is more focused on teacher contracts and district administration, no one really advocates for the kids. Student consideration only if it works within the parameters of the union contract.

The teachers and the staff are friendly and dedicated. Kokanee unfortunately has undergone phenomenal growth. Numbers are in the 700's for a school meant for a student body of 500. Portables have been added and students face long lunch lines and no programs during recess because of limited spaces to hold them. Portables have been taken up playground space leaving fewer places to play for a burgeoning number of kids. The PTA is active and successful at fundraising to support after school activities. The principal has created an unwelcome atmosphere for both staff and parents which is unfortunate.
