The first grade teachers are awesome , but the second grade teacher my son has doesn't listen to my son concerns and the principal never has time to talk about the situations going on with my child and his teacher...I plan to move just so he can get the best where communication is important. Also every ...  Read more

My daughters got the very best beginning of their long, public education at Summerville Elem. The Principal was the best ever! He knew all the students' names - every one of them! It was amazing. He had a petting zoo on school grounds, and lots of animals and birds inside the building. The teachers ...  Read more

I honestly can't say enough about Dr. Sires and the staff at SES. They are hands down the best team around! They have been a major support for my son when it seemed he just couldn't cope and helped me find the much needed resources to get him through and learn better ways to work things out. Dr. Sires ...  Read more

I have 3 daughters at this school. They all love going to school everyday. Dr. Sires holds 'Camp Sires' at his home every year for the kids who have met their reading goals and it is a VERY big deal to the kids to be able to attend this very special day. My 5th grader is on the petting zoo crew and on ...  Read more

This is the best school My children have been to and I have volunteered at! This school makes you feel like family from day one. Dr. Sires never forgets a child or their family. I wish my children were still young enough to attend this school! Great activities for the children. Young astronauts, GATE, ...  Read more

Dr. Sires (principal) and the school staff have created a good school environment for learning. Parents are actively involved in the school and it has many extra activities for students, such as art club, spanish club, a good news club and similar activities. There is also a 'gate program' for students ...  Read more
