My child attented Strehle for her Pre-k 3, 3rd & now 4th grade school years. She has been an above average student since she begin school at the age of 2. She has attended private schools for her Pre K- 4, KnderG, 1st & 2nd grade school years so in comparission to that, she has had great success here. She was placed into gifted last year to present, make the spirit squad team and is being auditioned for the Talent in Theater. I also have a daughter in Pre - K 4 and she has awesome teachers! I would say that the teachers do make a difference when they see a student and parents giving their best. It is our responsibility as parents to prepare our children for school and not expect miracles to happen witin a 6-8 hour day by a teacher that teaches over 60 students within that time frame. We need good ole fashion discipline to get our childern on track!!
