    My son has the best first grade teacher. I am happy with the communication with the teacher and I. It shows she cares and wants my child to achieve his very best potential in his academics.

    This school is the best bar none! Students are treated with respect and teachers care about education. These kids are prepared for the next levels of education and are offered extra help whenever needed.

    I am very unhappy with the schools test scores. the princiapl at the school does not seem to be tryinf to improve the school. The school seems to be rapidly going down the drain. I have two children at this school and I am very disappointed with the lack of teacher support to my EL student as well as the lack of principal involvement.

    Great School I have two younger sister that attend this school and both are excellent students. I myself am a former Schilling Stallion thanks to Schilling Elementary staff i'm a succesful young adult! The school has great programs for children. However due to budget cuts there are no more after school programs that help the students with homework etc.
