8 Parent Reviews for Circleville Elementary School
My two children attended Circleville Elementary for the duration of their primary education; all the teachers went above and beyond my expectations (except one who I thought was weak and inexperienced). The 4th and 5th grade teachers are exceptional and was reflected in my children's progress.

I have been involved with this school since 2000 as a volunteer. I find that all of the staff has one thing in common and that is the well being of the student (our children).

I find the teachers are more than capable of administering to the needs of the student - they are all well qualified.

The PTA is doing just GREAT in raising money and somewhat organize. The meetings are more of a Night out for 'PTA Moms . Outside of trying to find volunteers they fail to encourage parent and teacher involvement. No real concerns because trying to find Parents to take on leadership roles is Null. Overall feel- Mediocre Education -NOT impressed. Read less
