    It is a wonderful school for all age groups but there have been many teacher changes in the first and second grades. A few years ago I remember all the original teachers but now looking I see many different teachers names in the school directory. The PTA is a great organization it organizes many fun events like author visits bingo nights and programs like Reflections. Although the school seems to be quite plain the teachers are fun and interesting according to my child. I think if any parents are concerned about moving away from their child's current school to Salt Brook I'd say that they shouldn't worry about it. I also want to comment on the excellent music program that includes a great curriculum and teachers. I think it's an enriching experience for a child. In conclusion Salt Brook is a very fine school.

    Overall the school is excellent. However the great Salt Brook experience is totally dependant on what teacher you have and some are much better than others. A lot of teacher turnover. Classes are big 23 students. There should be a mandate against lobbying for your favorite teacher-getting into a good class is frought with politics! Basically your next school year is a kraps shoot-your child can have an insane class that shows absolutely no common sense on how it was put together. Best advice hold your breath and pray for a good class.

    Overall the school provides an excellent education. The PTA provides an extraordinary amount of programs to the school like author day visits school-wide assemblies mini-grants for teacher-inspired projects etc. Without these the school would be quite blah. There is also too much turnover of teachers at the lowest grade levels so I think that the ability to teach the curriculum properly is dependent on the teacher. Things stabilize at 4th grade.
