    This is the best elementary school in Sioux Falls SD. Their teaching staff and curriculum are A+ meaning they use the arts to teach everything. They really encourage creativity and are small enough that my daughter only has 17 kids in her 1st grade class. Dr. Coulter is the best and most friendly principal I know.
