A wonderful school! As some comments have noted, Aldo does not give grades and fosters community, not competition. As someone who studies education, I know that this approach works and I'm thrilled that this (public) school option exists for my child. She loves learning and does not need to be motivated by grades. There is a LOT of quality parent involvement. My sister, who lives in MA, is jealous that we have such a high-quality option!

Excellent, hands on, personalized learning. Caring and supportive staff. Parents are welcome and are very involved. Highly recommended.

I love Aldo Leopold. I am going into 8th grade this year and have been going to Aldo since 3rd grade. Its VERY hands-on and the teachers are always encourging and motivating. And there ARE special needs classes, I know many kids who went to Aldo with special needs and they seemed to have enjoyed it. We just recently added 4K and Chelsea is one of my favorite teachers along with Patrick Wallace, Julie Rabideau, Tim Devine and Kara. I am sad to be leaving next year. :(

This school is excellent for what it is. Distinctives: 1) Experiential learning in the community - high leveraging of community resources for the student's benefit: parent involvement, field trips to educational places, St. Norbert's college 'buddies' pairing with individual students to give input into their work & more. Community positively regards and significantly supports this school. 2) High focus on relationship. Teachers don't always teach 1 to 22 - they teach 1 to1, 22 times if necessary 3) Truly value diversity & respect for the individual. 'Mean Girls' & bullying is significantly less here than at other schools my kids have been at 4) Staff is organized around Education vs. Administration (like the best Customer Service oriented companies!) 5) Building is utlized as much and as often as possible, w/ MANY reasonably priced after school enrichment programs offered. 6) 390 students -preK-8 is smaller than many elementaries! 7) Strong parent community.

This is a great school if your child has no special needs and is able to motivate themselves. If not, then I would NOT send them there.

Aldo was a great school that is becoming, at best, a mediocre one. The introduction of new teachers who have been with inner city schools and have adopted those schools disciplinary methods is counter to what Aldo's mission was. There is still a core of great teachers at the school, but no longer can a student hope to have excellence all the way through their Aldo experience.

I LOVE Aldo because they do so much more hands on learning with the kids. They try to teach through other means than simply text books and it shows in how much fun the kids have. It is not your average public school!

Aldo Leopold is a choice school in the Green Bay area and many other students from other districts shoose to attend this Green Bay school. It is a Progressive School and has a great deal of family/community support and involvement. I choose to teach here because I am allowed to let students work to their potential and beyond. Students are allowed to work at their own rate and level. We encourage community outreach to use our knowledge in ways to better the school, home ,a nd the comunity.

This is a great school for the right student. My daughter has been at Aldo for 4 years and has bloomed! SHe is, however, self-driven and is self-disciplined despite the lack of regidity in the school. It is importnat that your child can thrive in a chaotic environment. If so, the sky is the limit for creativity and academic acceleration.

Aldo Leopold is an extremely wonderful school. We love how advanced students get to take advanced classes and the teachers really meet their needs. We are 7th graders taking a 9th grade Algebra course, next year we will be taking the 10th grade Geometry course. Also, when kids are feeling underchallenged, teachers usually give alternative assignments for those who would like/need them.

The kids are not challenged at all in this school. It is a feel-good, non-competitive environment. If you expect a lot from your child, this isn't the place for them. If you want them to be treated like little adults in the alternative universe where no one has any responsibility and good things just 'happen', then this is definitely the school for your child.

This is a great school. The parents are heavily involved. The teachers are great. Our son loved it. Especially, the mixed grades and the exploratories. The parents have progressive values and the teachers want parent input.

I am not impressed with the moral of the school. There seems to be too much freedom & not enough accountability. There isn't a lot of showing respect towards eachother. The school has one thing going for them & thats the field trips.

I love what Aldo has done for my daughters self confidence and overall attitude. The teachers challenge the students but do not overwhelm them. I believe this is the best elementry school in the Green Bay school system. Great Concept in learning.

Our two children attended Aldo from Kindergarten through 8th grade. The program was very good for them. Aldo does not have an A - F grading system and sometimes difficult to know how they were doing in comparision to standardized schools. Our daughter completed a high school entrance exam and received 93% out of 99%. Our son is now a sophmore and has never fell below 3.0. The school has very respectful students and the relaxed atmosphere allows children to enjoy learning and not dreading it. The only thing the school is missing, in my opinion, would be organized sports teams. But there are other local schools that offer athletic minded students to join their teams, so it wasn't a problem for us.

Having been a part of the Aldo community for 4 years now, the young adults leaving this school continue to impress us with their extreme confidence and rational. Principal Batey is a pleasure to work with and his leadership of this gift to Green Bay exceeds expectations. Teachers and students work together in a relaxed atmosphere as children learn to set goals, meet them and move forward. Acceptance from their peers and leaders brings their self confidence to great levels, preparing them for the realities that face them not only in High School, but their entire future. We implore any person who questions this school's principles to visit and educate themselves. We also suggest they visit the City of Green Bay Public School website and compare the scores of Aldo Students to the traditional schools scores. Thank you Principal Batey and Thank You to all the wonderful teachers at Aldo.

It's everything James said. My whole family loves this school; this year, my niece is starting kindergarten there. At our last school, I got funny looks when I walked in, as if I didn't belong there and something must be wrong. Here, parent involvement is not only appreciated, but expected. I originally planned on moving to Madison for grad school, but my children's spirits (as well as their intellects) are so well-nurtured here, that I'm looking for ways to stay in Green Bay.

Non-traditional school. The best elementary education the area has to offer. Dedicated teachers, excellent administration, superior educational philosophy. Can't say enough good about this school.
