    My kids and I think this is a warm and friendly school with dedicated staff. I am a bit concerned with the newer principal because I have heard ethical rumors about her personal choices and integrity that I do not want my children exposed to. She seems good with parents and children but not as strong as a leader who needs to positively progress the school.

    My son has attended Metteer elementary for kindergarten. At first I hesitated but decided to try Metteer. I have been completely pleased with the past year. I am very active at the school and volunteer weekly in my sons class. His teacher is wonderful she strives to provide good academics for the children but also do activities relating to being children. My son could not write his name when he started. Now he writes his entire name perfectly has learned new words can spell some of them and read them. I have been very impressed with the outcome this year 2009-2010. We also had a new principle start in August and she has been wonderful. She cares about the children staff and has made Metteer Elementary and incredible school to take your children to.

    The teacher's actually care about their students and what they learn. They don't just jump through the district hoops.

    The students and faculty at Metteer Elementary is by far the best in Tehama County. I have witnessed student from the surrounding schools and their behaviors. They show no school spirit and in fact tease and ridicule their fellow students. I am not stating that Metteer students are never mean to their fellow students but the incidents are far fewer and less severe.

    I am currently a 7th grade student at metteer school and i think this school is very warm and welcoming to every new student. The teachers and staff are really caring and the students too. There is no fighting or anything at this school it is a place where everyone gets along compared to oher schools. It has really changed throughout the year with our new principle mr.Mccoy who has changed everything in a good way.

    It started out strong but is becoming ineffective. as it stands today it is not a real alternative. This review should not be confused witht he Metteer K-6 program which continues to be excellent.

    This is a wonderful school the teachers are inspiring and the aftershool program is phenominal I wish we could take the school with us when we move. My son is 12 and went here and my daughter is 8 and goes here they are supportive and do all they can to facilitate the children with their learning experienc.
