    A wonderful school! As some comments have noted Aldo does not give grades and fosters community not competition. As someone who studies education I know that this approach works and I'm thrilled that this (public) school option exists for my child. She loves learning and does not need to be motivated by grades. There is a LOT of quality parent involvement. My sister who lives in MA is jealous that we have such a high-quality option!

    Excellent hands on personalized learning. Caring and supportive staff. Parents are welcome and are very involved. Highly recommended.

    I love Aldo Leopold. I am going into 8th grade this year and have been going to Aldo since 3rd grade. Its VERY hands-on and the teachers are always encourging and motivating. And there ARE special needs classes I know many kids who went to Aldo with special needs and they seemed to have enjoyed it. We just recently added 4K and Chelsea is one of my favorite teachers along with Patrick Wallace Julie Rabideau Tim Devine and Kara. I am sad to be leaving next year. (

    This school is excellent for what it is. Distinctives 1) Experiential learning in the community - high leveraging of community resources for the student's benefit parent involvement field trips to educational places St. Norbert's college 'buddies' pairing with individual students to give input into their work & more. Community positively regards and significantly supports this school. 2) High focus on relationship. Teachers don't always teach 1 to 22 - they teach 1 to1 22 times if necessary 3) Truly value diversity & respect for the individual. 'Mean Girls' & bullying is significantly less here than at other schools my kids have been at 4) Staff is organized around Education vs. Administration (like the best Customer Service oriented companies!) 5) Building is utlized as much and as often as possible w/ MANY reasonably priced after school enrichment programs offered. 6) 390 students -preK-8 is smaller than many elementaries! 7) Strong parent community.

    This is a great school if your child has no special needs and is able to motivate themselves. If not then I would NOT send them there.

    I love this school it is a school where a lot of people are nice and people i usually think wouldn't get along at schools like lombardi they actually get along at aldo! its the best school ever!!!!!

  • (5 years ago)

    Aldo was a great school that is becoming at best a mediocre one. The introduction of new teachers who have been with inner city schools and have adopted those schools disciplinary methods is counter to what Aldo's mission was. There is still a core of great teachers at the school but no longer can a student hope to have excellence all the way through their Aldo experience.

    I LOVE Aldo because they do so much more hands on learning with the kids. They try to teach through other means than simply text books and it shows in how much fun the kids have. It is not your average public school!

    Hands on experience and parent involement.

    Aldo Leopold is a choice school in the Green Bay area and many other students from other districts shoose to attend this Green Bay school. It is a Progressive School and has a great deal of family/community support and involvement. I choose to teach here because I am allowed to let students work to their potential and beyond. Students are allowed to work at their own rate and level. We encourage community outreach to use our knowledge in ways to better the school home a nd the comunity.

    Our 3 children went to Also Leopold and gained wonderful educations there geared to their interests and abilities!

    This is a great school for the right student. My daughter has been at Aldo for 4 years and has bloomed! SHe is however self-driven and is self-disciplined despite the lack of regidity in the school. It is importnat that your child can thrive in a chaotic environment. If so the sky is the limit for creativity and academic acceleration.

    Aldo Leopold is an extremely wonderful school. We love how advanced students get to take advanced classes and the teachers really meet their needs. We are 7th graders taking a 9th grade Algebra course next year we will be taking the 10th grade Geometry course. Also when kids are feeling underchallenged teachers usually give alternative assignments for those who would like/need them.

  • (9 years ago)

    The kids are not challenged at all in this school. It is a feel-good non-competitive environment. If you expect a lot from your child this isn't the place for them. If you want them to be treated like little adults in the alternative universe where no one has any responsibility and good things just 'happen' then this is definitely the school for your child.

    This is a great school. The parents are heavily involved. The teachers are great. Our son loved it. Especially the mixed grades and the exploratories. The parents have progressive values and the teachers want parent input.

  • (9 years ago)

    I am not impressed with the moral of the school. There seems to be too much freedom & not enough accountability. There isn't a lot of showing respect towards eachother. The school has one thing going for them & thats the field trips.

  • (9 years ago)

    I love what Aldo has done for my daughters self confidence and overall attitude. The teachers challenge the students but do not overwhelm them. I believe this is the best elementry school in the Green Bay school system. Great Concept in learning.
