10 Parent Reviews for Kolling Elementary School

As a 1st grade teacher (Miss Crowe, then) at Kolling School 50 years ago, a student (Richard Dubb) ran into our classroom during recess to tell me that Present Kennedy had been shot. He heard it on a student's transistor radio. I remember that moment well. I'm now Ruth Trenary and retired after teaching ...  Read more

Amazing!! I love the staff and teachers at Kolling, they are hard working, very organized, and dedicated to our children and the community as a whole. The environment at Kolling is warm and I love that there is no tolerance for bulling or nonsense. Like anything else in this world Kolling isn't perfect, ...  Read more

Overall I think the school is mediocre, at best. Because of the extreme growing pains and budget cuts, the overall quality is lacking. Many of the specials that other schools have are not offered here; children take one field trip during the year; there are no "pull out" programs available for high ability ...  Read more

I have had no problems with the staff of Kolling, I do like the parent participation and think that this is one of the major reasons that Kolling standards are so high. When the parents are involved in the learning experience all persons benifit greatly!

Our two older children attended the parochial school in town, and our youngest has attended Kolling from K-3 so far. We find the teachers at Kolling are uniformly excellent, and that more is available to a high-potential ...  Read more

I rhink that any school that has doubled in size will have growing pains - but - I think that they are still doing their best in regard to students. Excellent School!

We built a new home in a subdivision that goes to Kolling. I was impressed by their I Step scores. However, the more I see, the more I do not like. There is no help for High Ability students. The school seems to be overburdened by their growth and quality is suffering. The apathy is not good. Instead ...  Read more

Kolling is a good school overall, but too large. Class sizes are moderate, but there are numerous classrooms for each grade. Our community is growing by leaps and bounds and the school is suffering. A new middle school is being built to try to alleviate the numbers, but it stands that each year my ...  Read more

Overall all the elementary schools are good but education is geared mostly to the average to below average student. If you have a academically gifted child beware, the school doesn't have any program for them until 4th and/or 5th grade and it's a big 'if' your child is accepted to the program (approx ...  Read more

The reason we moved to Indiana was because of the school quality/learning, especially at Kolling. Even before we started our family, Kolling was a four star school, as well as Kahler and Grimmer ( middle schools ). The pricipal and teachers are awesome and I do not regret my decision, but encourage others ...  Read more
