    Crim is a nuturing warm school where the teachers care deeply about the kids. I couldn't imagine a better environment for my kids! Thanks Crim School!

    My son is now in second grade at Crim School. I have NOTHING bad to say about this school. The teachers are excellent the principal is just so amazing and her staff is caring and organized. I really am so grateful to have my child in such a wonderful and nurturing school.

    The teachers are the best. Many parents are very involved in a very active and generous PTO. The principal is visible and approachable. She runs a (maybe too) tight ship which is mostly good but might stifle the creativity of teachers and parent volunteers a bit. My child is having an extremely positive learning experience at Crim.

    The Crim School is well-organized and a great learning environment for my son. He leaves school each day happy and excited to learn more.

    I think Crim is a great school. My only complaint is they should teach students and teachers more about germ control. More emphasis on covering when coughing and sneezing and hand washing. Then my daughter would be missing less school days.

    As Crim's PTO president half way through my second term I feel I know Crim's good and bad. I find our new principal(in her 2nd year)responsive to both the needs of the children staff and parents. She is receptive to PTO suggestions and criticisms. We have increased the number of assemblies for the children installed a new playground passed the budget referendum. I have met many great parents at different school functions. My children love to go to school and that is half the battle.

    After 1 1/2 years at this school I removed my child due to a painful teacher conflict that was handled most inapproapriately. The class sizes are much larger than stated in the official review. While the children learn a lot academically bullying is prevalent. The current principal (Spring 2004) leaves a lot to be desired.
