    Croninger is an excellent school! I am a former student there my child is attending this year and last year I also worked there as an assistant. I love that students get a well-rounded education with plenty of character-building skills. The teachers are very good at working with the students as a whole group and individually. The only improvements I would love to see is just building improvements so that the children and staff are in an upgraded building.

    My children have been at Croninger for 2 years. I had heard really great things but haven't been very impressed. The students in general are not very nice or friendly. My children have not been happy at Croninger they liked their last school much better. The teachers are fine and some are very nice. The office staff including the principal is great.

    I love Fred H. Croninger Elementary School. I have 5 children and this will be our 14th year at the school. The teachers and staff at Croninger are outstanding. They really care about the children. They have a top notch communications room and tv studio right in the school. All classes get to take Spanish. The teachers love the parental support they receive. It is just a wonderful school.

    My grandchildren go Croninger Elementary in FWCS. The teachers there are very strong and make school fun. I am retired after 39 yrs in a public school corporation in an area that has beautiful schools and environment. FWCS does not have that luxery. Class sizes are big schools are old and need improvements (no air conditioning small classrooms cafe/gym same room poor teacher work room etc). Teachers and parents work well together and work hard to do the extra things that make Croninger special. I am proud that my grandchildren go to Croninger Elementary.

    Croninger is a wonderful school in which we have had 3 children attend since kindergarten 2 of which are still enrolled there. We have had wonderful teachers that have brought strengths in our children that we didn't know existed. We are blessed to be able to work with the teachers and administration in making it the best school for our children. The parent involvement at Croninger is unbelievable!

    I have three children who have attended Croninger Elementary. This school is amazing how they can balance a Four Star education with their Communication Focus. They learn spanish write newspapers publish books perform a Lip Sync show on a real stage in the community broadcast the schools news program and more. The teachers and other staff at Croninger are very dedicated to children and it shows. I am so blessed that my children attend and have attended Croninger Elementary. Fondly Shelly Merz

    It's a great school with high expectations and standards. Everyone works very hard to make sure each child succeeds! There are many opportunities for parents to get involved and it's encouraged.

    Croninger's faculty and staff truly care about each of the students that attend school there! We couldn't have picked a better school for our daughter to attend. The focus on communications is a huge bonus. We envision leaders of tomorrow based on the skills Croninger is instilling today.

    The first years of a childs education can make such a difference! My daughter just started kindergarten and she loves school. She bounces out of bed every morning with such excitement to learn and grow. The first few days were stressful for her but due to the incredible administrative staff and her wonderful teacher Mrs. Hoffman all turned out well.

The students are getting the best education possible and they always come home smiling cause they not only learned that day. They were also praised uplifted and believed in. Thanks Croninger Staff you're the best!

    My daughter has attended Croninger since she was in kindergarten. She is now in fifth grade. I am on this website now to find a school that will give her the same educational extracurricular and empowering environment that she has had at Croninger. I can't wait until my 3 year old is old enough to attend!
