    I think the school is good for smart kids that are not labeled and have educated parents. I think the kids are not treated equally. If you move the smart kids from the school then it will not be a great school! The teachers are not creative and they do not stay after school or offer tutoring!!!

    Sycamore Elementary School provided an outstanding education for my son. He was in KEY classes in grades K-5 continued in KEY classes at Central Middle School and is now in AP classes at Kokomo High School. He is now looking at colleges and I must thank the outstanding principal teachers and staff of Sycamore Elementary School for providing the foundation for his future. What I appreciated most was the deep dedication of the principal and teachers to providing students with a well-rounded education. Math and English are indeed important but they're not the sole measure of student life and learning. I appreciate Sycamore's continued dedication to Science Social Studies and the arts. This is a truly outstanding school and an exceptional choice for a student's future.

    i think sycamore has an excellent principal but i have to stop there i have a problem how they place such a strong emphasis on reading yes everyone should read and be able to understand what they read but the constant pressure on the kids is to read read read and i think that is unfair not everyone likes to read and to be forced is bad

    I currently have three children attending Sycamore. The faculty and staff there are are the cream of the crop. I love the fact that they are excited about education and the majority them are pushing my children and other to strive for excellence.
