    My two children have been attending Schnecksville for the past 3 years. I am disappointed with the curriculum which appears to be solely focused on preparing them to take the standardized tests.

    Schnecksville Elementary is a wonderful school. I have a kindergartener and a 3rd grader. Both my sons are doing great and they love the school. The cirriculum is challenging and the teachers are wonderful.

    I believe the school is not what it seems to be. The teachers assign not a lot of homework and when they do they don't explain it to my child properly.
