    My older son attended 4th grade last year after we moved here from CA and it has been an incredible experience for all of us! Mr. Cody was an AWESOME teacher!!! So glad to met him. My middle son is attending this school year to Discovery Den Program and the teachers are excellent too!!! Thank you so much to all the staff for your dedication. If we would have to choose a school again we would choose Fall River. We highly recommend it.

    I haven't had a good relationship with my child's teacher since she began this year. Some special services should be provided for children with their struggles & the teachers should be the first to inform parents of concerns. Not after the year is half over with many concerns.

    Dr. Guthals and the Fall River Elementary School teaching staff are AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about this school and how they get the kids to ENJOY learning! Fall River pushes the kids to do their best and the TESTS scores TCap & CSAP show it! GREAT school and we feel blessed to be a part of it! Both of my kids have improved their reading scores and math since they have been at Fall River!

    The principal Marge Rice is fantastic!! She's caring concerned and proactive. A definite plus for the school. The teachers are great too. The front office staff can be a bit prickly. This is one of the better rated schools in Longmont. The school is adjacent to a great neighborhood park.
