    I came to this school from Michigan and my son loves it. The teachers are all great and the the principal is willing to help in any situation. This school is within a small town but the amount of children they service is vast. They know everyone's name and have no problem correcting children who get out of hand. The way the schools here are ran there wont be any problems the teachers and counselors see problems and get them corrected immediately.

    I think our school deserves a five star rating from the principal to the teacher. We have quality teachers and office staff. The parents are very involved with the school. The safety at the school is excellent I never have to worry about my child. The school always provides extra activities to involve the students. This is a five star school.

    Mr. Blaine is the most wonderful principal. He goes out of the way to care for the children. My son loves him to death.

    I love this school system. Our principal asst. principal and teachers are wonderful helpful caring and truely concerned. I do fell that the school could and should have art as well as music . Who says one class is more important that the other . Also the gifted program and the teacher are wonderful. I love you AES thanks for taking care of my boys .

    I attended Ackerman Elementary School as a child and swore I would never ever have my own child attend it. Unfortunately things happened and he is now attending AES. Besides Mr. Blaine everything about AES remains the same. I will not say all of the teachers are there strictly for the money but I will say that the majority of them are not there because they 'love' to teach. My childs teacher never smiles shows no love for the children and pretty much gave up on my son a long time ago. Instead of the teachers trying to encourage the children and build self-esteem them they (the ones I have dealt with personally) seem bent on striking fear in them for not catching on quickly enough. I can't say enough the regret I feel for ever enrolling my child here. He will not be attending this school next year.

    I attended AES and now my daughter is enrolled. We only have one more year before she moves on to jr high and I will miss AES terribly. We moved back from another state to enable my child to attend AES. Mr. Blaine is great and goes above and beyond for the students and parents. We have a wonderful PTO and they provide plenty of extras for the kids and school. Activities are many. My daughter signs up for everything and keeps me very busy.

    I am not pleased with this school at all. I would move to another district before enrolling your children in this school. Children are not allow to talk during lunch and will be sent to recess dete[n]tion if they do. Teachers are not equip with the latest tools to teach our children appropriately. This school needs more training. No art programs. Materials seem to be limited or old. They do not meet the needs of special needs children compared to other schools.

    My child attended AES from kindergarten to 6th grade and I did as well. This is an awesome school! Children are taught to strive to reach their goals and excell in every way. The principal of this school is a Godsend! He's great with the kids and the adults and we just couldn't have asked for better. We were thinking of moving and honestly the school system is the only reason we didn't. Parents are involved in everything the acedemic program is great and the kids are kept active in extracurricular activities. AES gets an A+!

    My family moves often with work(or we did). This is the seventh school that we have attended and it is absolutely fantastic. The teachers are always willing to work with the parents on anything and the administration is outgoing fair and always looking for ways to bring in the community. The school has a very safe and friendly atmosphere and always seemed to individualize for my children. The academics are great. They have started many new programs that are computer based in the lower levels and they have research based programs to help work on the language aspects across the board. Teachers have told that this seemed to be the most needed area for the state let alone for Ackerman Elementary.

    You are offered only the basic things. There are some teachers here who still care about the students but for the most part (the younger ones) are only here for the paycheck.
