    We absolutely loved the first two years at Caldwell. The teachers were amazing organized there was a great communication system and a lot of learning going on. However for the last three years it has been right the opposite. I truly believe if the schools would take computers and cell phones out of the room then the students would get some teaching. I have been so disappointed (as a teacher myself) with the lack of teaching communication and accountability that should be held for the teachers standards. All children need to feel welcomed loved and important especially in school. I know it takes the parents the school and teachers to make sure the child is performing to their best ability. If I could move school districts I would!

    Because they encourage students to be the best they can be.

    My son went to school here K-4th from 2001-2005 and loved every year. Everything about Caldwell is great! Best Elementary school in town.

    This school is an overall above average school.All the teachers are nice and drive the kids to learn at there max. capability.Except they have a short coming of singling individual students out time after time and make no effort to try to get to the source of the problem other than accusing the source of the problem on the student{s} who are being singled out.Most parents know what I'm speaking of which is louse.At some point in time during a childs school life they are faced with dealing with louse and with treatment it is possible to rid of but when only one or two children whom are siblings are the only two checked and sent home multiple times well I and you both know that the louse would be rid of by the parents but then the same prolem again in 3 to 4 weeks the same ones singled out?
