Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
July 02, 2015
Very unprofessional, it is more like a military school. There are several teachers that love to yell at the children and the administration is only in favor of the school and its image.

This is more of a military type school, the administration only cares about their image and not the students.

I feel like Ranson Elementary is like this hidden little gem in the town that noone is aware of. The staff is AMAZING, so caring and committed to the children. I can not say enough good things about how wonderful this school is, and the level of dedication of its teaches, principle and head teacher. I take my son everyday knowing he will be learning while having fun in a loving environment.

Ranson Elementary is the best school my son has ever attended. He entered this school in the third grade with a "C" average in Mathematics. After one year in Ranson, he arrived at an "A" average, in Math, and achieved "above mastery" scores on The Westest 2 for both Math and Social Studies. He continues to thrive thanks to the dedication and encouragement of all his teachers there. We love this school!

This is a wonderful, inviting school. The teachers and staff do many extra things for the children. The school offers a challenging education, stability, love, and respect. My children have become wonderful learners and especially love to read, after going through Reading Recovery program, which I cannot praise enough!
