Since the previous reviews were quite old, I thought that it was time to write a new updated one! Cadott Elem had a new principal in Sept. 2009 again, after a time of transition. New principal is firm and well-liked. I especially like that he is currently putting clamps down on parent requests for teachers for their children, only allowing for educational reasons and only allowing request for NOT having a particular teacher, rather than requesting only one. We'll see if it follows through. That being said, my daughters' education has been above excellent. Being a SAGE grant school, their classes in the lower grades are never over 15-16! My kindergartener was reading by Christmas... and the teachers are always willing to go above and beyond! My only complaint is that Cadott is a small town, and I find the other parents to be rather cliquey. Takes time to 'break in.'
