Our experience has been that Colvin Run is an excellent school with a wonderful administration and very caring teachers.

I have two children in the school and we have experienced grades K to 3rd grade. The principal has brought some great programs into the school including violin for all 3rd graders, music for all 4th graders and Spanish - all with no county/state support. The parents and kids here are great. I haven't ...  Read more

We moved here two years ago and have two children at Colvin Run. I feel very lucky we chose to buy our house in Colvin Run's district. We were previously in another school that was also highly rated in another state but it doesn't come close to Colvin Run as to what actually happens in an average day. ...  Read more

i am a student at colvin run and have been there for 4 years. with the exception of fourth grade, all my teachers have been really nice. the principal is very good but it's the vice-principal who rules the school behind the scenes. overall a good school.

Not so great teachers, but a great afterschool ...  Read more

We are a military family so our children have attended 3 different elementary schools in 4 years. I can say without a doubt that Colvin Run is the best school we've ever attended.

This school is ok, not great as I hope for. There are some great teachers and bad ones at well. The administrators are always on the teachers' side. There are a lot bright kids at this school. I guess we can't expect much from public school with the strong teacher union.

We have 2 children currently at Colvin Run and have been there for 6 years. We could not be more impressed with the school, culture, students, and staff. I think the fact that it is the AAP (GT) center for the area makes the environment so conducive to learning. We have several friends that have moved ...  Read more

A wonderful school with an extremely dedicated staff (teachers and administrators) who care about the education our children are receiving.
