This school is very seggregated. The community here is educated and arrogant with limited tolerance towards diversity. Though in theoritical terms diversity is important in reality it is a farce.

I am a student that has been in Countryside Elementary school from third to fifth grade and I just want to notify all parents that despite all other criticizing comments, Countryside is an amazing school. Unlike some other schools the teachers and staff are very helpful and welcoming. In Countryside I was able to reach out to absolutely anyone and I am currently in 8th grade unable to in my new school. Please notice all the good things because through everything all the good things outweigh the bad. They hold Hunger Banquets and have so many activities in which help other causes out in the world. Countryside is one of the best places for a kid to grow, learn and explore. Yes there might be bullying but notice that there are so many ways in which Countryside is trying to prevent that. I have switched schools over 16 times and the one school in which I truly felt like I belonged and felt like I truly learned not just about school subjects but also about the world and how to help the society we live in. One of the most important rules I have learned from Countryside is, "Treat others as you would want them to treat you." and to be honest I live by that motto. I truly recommend Countryside to any parents searching for a great school.

This school is great.Unlike what other reviews said,there is a kitchen and the teaching is great.They also have a perfect anti bullying system.The only thing is that the school could use some renovations.specifically bathrooms.

My son started at this school FEB 2013 in the 4th grade. Now he is in the 5th grade. This is a terrible school. The standards are low, the administration is overwhelmed and there is a lot of bullying. We paid $800K for our house to get this terrible school. If we had paid $1K we would have gotten Memorial Spaulding, a much better school. We are very very disappointed.
