I can't say enough good things about this school. It's exceptional not only in its academic instruction but also for its social tone. The teachers and administrators are very caring and parental involvement in the school is strong.

It's very forward-looking. They've planted a vegetable garden and do a lot to teach the kids to be environmentally aware.
I love this school. Team work is the key. Principal welcomes you daily and is aware of all of your family members. I have had children at Media Elementary for over 9 years and I am totally satisfied.
I find Media Elementary to be an exceptional school. My children are challenged appropriately and offered guidance when needed. Special programs have assisted both of my children. It seems to me that everyone that works there knows just about almost every single child's name. Extra curricular activities planned by the PTG and school have been above standard. We truly hate to miss them. Both Mrs. Kotch and Mrs. White have had their eye on only the best for our children. The teachers are top notch!
I have three children in the school district. Two are in 3rd Grade at Media. Two different learning experiences and both children are taken care of with the individual needs taken into consideration. They are doing wonderful. The atmosphere at Media is caring. Plain and simple from Mrs. Kotch and her staff down to the people who keep the school running and looking immaculate. We are lucky to have the 'Gem' in the district.
Our 2nd grader has enjoyed school immensely this year and last year. Academically gifted enrichment starts in 3rd grade but he is being given special assignments this year to challenge him further. There is a very active Parent Teacher Group. We have not availed ourselves of extracurricular activities at school (he is involved in several out of school).
I have kids in 2 different elementry schools in this district. I can tell you that Media is better from every vantage. If you want you child to feel important cared about included and to learn this is your choice. Maria Koch leads this educational team with smiles and firmness.
