    Although I'm a freshman in high-school now I loved this elementary. This school really excelled my learning. I had great teachers (for the most part). The teachers really care about the students. I don't recall too much about the actual curriculum but it was very well rounded. We had art days every week music days (where I attempted to play the recorder) and it really helped me with my multiplication later in life.

    I'm not sure what happened with the kids from a few years ago but both our kids have done great at Little Cedars.

    Little Cedars is an outstanding school and our 3 children have been attending since it opened in 2008. The teachers are fantastic and really work to connect and motivate their students. While the academic program is challenging it has also been very rewarding to see our kids flourish in this environment. The Principal has been very involved and engaged and the school receives a lot of support from parents in the community.

    I was not very impressed; This school although was very nicely built did not live up to it overall expectations. My son used to attend Totem Falls and he had overall good grades was in the AR accelerated reading program. Was good friends with most of the teachers never got in trouble and had many friends that were kind and respectful; but sadly in his third grade year. The new Little Cedars school was built and he was required to transfer. Learning about all the new features of the school was great yet none of his friends transferred either. The school didn t seem to have an AR program and his grades and work ethic seemed to decline. He also complained more about schools and would have rather stayed at the other school.

    I'm not entirely impressed by this school. My son never had an issue in school socially and his grades were really good at Seattle Hill. When we transferred to the new school his grades and test scores went down and he's had some issues socially here. The Vice principal seems to have his hand on the control and I think he really cares about the kids. But I'm not really impressed with the teachers we've had so far. I feel they are overworked and the teachers aren't especially organized with a few exceptions. I am also unimpressed with the front desk receptionist. However the parent involvement is very good. This year I haven't been as involved as other years due to work load but when I am there helping out there are many parents stepping up and getting involved.

    Little Cedars is a wonderful school and has a great Principal who is very concerned with each and every student. We had an absolutely wonderful full-day kindergarten teacher who goes above and beyond. There is great parent involvment in the classroom and for the school. This school is definitely five stars.

    It is a great school for our kids! It has great teachers and an exellant staff. My child comes home and I ask how was school she says it was great!

    Word could never properly express how much this school has done for my son! He has several neurological disorders and over the past 8 months I have gotten to know the entire staff it seems like. My son is high functioning and still in a regular class room. This school has bent over backwards to meet my childs every need not just academically but socially as well. Each staff member that my son and I have come into contact with has a genuine concearn and desire for my sons sucess. They plan to be there for him as a support system and a cheering section till graduation day! I could not measure the level of quality that each staff member brings to this school. I could not measure the level of true heartfelt commitment and and Love for each students happiness and sucess that I have been personally witness to!

    I couldn't be happier with this new school. The teachers staff and principle are top notch. They are friendly and happy to be working with kids. The school also has a wonderful PTA. They have offered so many great and fun opportunities to the kids and their families. I have also seen my son being challenged after 3 disappointing years at Seattle Hill.
