    I am very impressed with sutterville school! I love how the teachers engage with the children as the Principle does too. My daughter is enjoying her first year there and loves the fact that they have a variety of programs to choose from. When a child enjoys going to school and looks forward to the next day that show's that there is a wonerful positive atmosphere!

    GATE or non-GATE this school does not separate the two. My son been there since 2nd grade and will be 5th grade this year; when there are activities they don't ever separate that grade level out. It is the parent's of kid(s) who goes there that does not involve themselves with the school-- wether it be fundraising volunteering your 1-2 day(s) out of the year to help teachers or help out with school fieldtrips that are complaining. There is more to name but those are the most important. This school is very active. At this school there is a lot of parent involvement and that is how every school should be in order to have a great school. The teachers are great. You can only expect so much from a teacher of 25+ students. The principal is doing her job as best as she can. Its a great school. You will enjoy it.

    I have three children attending this school and so far I am happy with their learning progress. They are all GATE students and I am a very proud parent.

    My now 7 year old has been attending this school for two years of preschool and beyond. All the teachers are great and really seem to care about the students! I would and have given very positive reviews of this school! I am excited to send my baby there when she is old enough. I am thrilled Sutterville Elementry is my daughter's home school.

    This school gives a substandard education. Stay away if possible! The GATE program is laughable. The teachers don't care about dealing with bullies. The principal is ineffectual. The non-GATE classes are filled with inclusion students. Your children will not get a good education at this school.

    Sutterville is the best. I have a student in 4 th grade GATE. Not only am I a parent I am also a teacher in the district. I have seen some poor no supportive principals. The principal at Sutterville isoneof the bestprincipalsI have seen. Sheis dedicated kind and cares about her students. My daughters teacher is trained in GATE and is using GATE curriculum. I love Sutterville and am so thankful my daughter is at Sutterville.

    I can't say enough about our experience at Sutterville. We love it! My children are in 3rd and 4th grade and they have the BEST most dedicated teachers. The teachers truly love what they do and it shows in how they really listen to and respect each child'd individual needs and differences. My kids enjoy going to school and are eager to learn. I do have to say that I am VERY opinionated about the GATE program and not at all a fan of it. However my daughter ended up in it anyway. Her 4th grade GATE teacher (who I adore!) helped to put my mind at ease a little bit. And it turns out that as far as school work goes it really hasn't been much different. It just kind of has it's social "cliques." One other thing there are a few teachersin the lower grades who should think about retirement. You aren't doing those children favors by teaching when you are obviously burnt out. Overall I am so lucky to have my kods at Sutterville. It really is the best!

    We have had nothing but great experiences at Sutterville.The teachers care and work hard to make sure every child is successful. The principal is awesome. You don't find dedicated principals like her anymore.

    First I want to say that this school has a great 4th R staff and afterschool activities. CAUTION it is a two teir school. GATE and NON GATE. The school boasts being a GATE center but it also boasts being an all inclusion school where they welcome filling the non gate classes with special ed kids who used to be in separate program.. GATE is not accelerated advanced or challenging. At this school it is one thing---a filter from the non gate kids. If your ego needs to say that your child is GATE you might want to rethink? If you have a regular student you will REALLY want to check things out first. If you are not in GATE is disapointing to be a student and get second level teaching. The teachers are so busy dealing with the probelm kids that they do no thave time to teach. Or they are so burned out they do not want to teach. Also that lake of professional grooming of some teacher is appauling. It is easy to navigate the non gate teachers for the first couple years but once you hit 4th good luck. The principle is very nice but I suspect her hands are tied as nothing has changed. It has potential but without change in overall culture it will fail to deliver

    Our daughter had attended this school and is in college now but I have attributed much of her academic success to the foundation built when she was going through Sutterville Elementary. The teachers and staff are excellent.

    Being a parent of two boys at Sutterville has been a great experience for our whole family. All of our teachers have been exceptional the staff very helpful and the principal very involved. The parent involvement has been a huge plus. The PTA has done a great job of raising funds to help bring educational programs and activities to the school. The GATE program is excellent - WONDERFUL teachers. Wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

    I recently spent several days observing Sutterville Elementary school and was very pleased with the school. The teachers and office staff was very helpful.The teachers seemed to really care about the students. They also had very good control in the class room.

    The staff at Sutterville are very caring. I have 2 sons attending and they both are doing extremely well. They are very forthcoming about information and what is going on at the school. There are never any suprises. Their GATE program is exceptional. I have never seen so much parent involvement at an elementary school. The parents really care about the school and what is going on. I like the fact that my son's GATE teacher has a way of making sure the parents know what is going on academically.

    Great community school with a warm welcoming environment!

    The teachers are very committed making sure every student progresses and learns. The principal is active within the community and other parents spend countless hours supporting the school in the gardens and through other PTA functions.

    Sutterville Elementary School offers a solid and safe academic experience for students in grades K through 6. Sutterville's teachers are caring and dedicated. The Parent-Teacher Association is very active and raises monies to enrich the educational experience of all the school's students. The grounds of the school are neat and well maintained. New playground equipment and other improvements to the campus provide a stimulating and attractive place where Sutterville students can learn and grow strong.
