This is a great school. The only issue I can think of is that it could be more ethnically diverse. The staff and principals are great, the expectations high, the PTA does wonderful things and raises large amounts of funds to add all types of before and after school enrichment programs.

This school used to be a great school until the new principal got rid of every old teacher that dared not to agree with everything that he tried to do. Teacher that were working at the school for decades were pushed out and the principal brought his own crew. I didn't think that this kind of Stalin ...  Read more

My son is now is 1st grade at Schmitz Park. I have nothing but good things to say about the school, other than the fact that the class size is a tad large. They have great PE and music programs, and he's really learning-and, more importantly, enjoying learning-at a fast pace. He loves his teacher, respects ...  Read more

The Passport Program (geography) is amazing, the Read Naturally program is also a great success. I have ...  Read more
