Scandia is a fabulous school and it is an honor and privilege to be a teacher here. We have a wonderful principal and a team of dedicated teachers and staff. The campus is full of enthusiastic hard-working caring students and the parent involvement is amazing.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Scandia. The office staff is very helpful the teachers are great and the new principal is outstanding!
The office staff and first grade teachers are amazing. My child has blossomed under the new first grade teachers. I am concerned about apathy of the 2nd grade teachers (there is one very loud screamer) as they don't seem motivated anymore. The other grades I have heard good things about. It is very disappointing that there no extracurricular activities but that is due to state budget and not the school. Overall I am very happy with both of my children going here.
We enrolled our children in this school and were encouraged by the office staff's friendliness. We have never had problems in school and were looking forward to the year. This school was a big disappointment. The second graders are treated as middle school students. School is not made to be fun but more of a 'military style' school. Our kids came home crying every day over things that shouldn't have been an issues. At a young age we felt it important to make school fun while learning. We switched our children to another school in the district and have not had any issues since. Scores are not the only thing that should be considered in this school.
My 2 children attend Scandia I am very disappointed. There is no extracurricular activities. They cancelled music this year. The classrooms are pod style which means 4 classes are held in one room with only half walls to seperate them. This creates huge distractions for the children. The teachers lack any enthusiasm towards the children. It is a real shame.
My son has been going to Scandia since he started Kindergarten & he loves it. We are also very pleased w/Scandia. Although there have been alot of changes this year w/the teacher cuts we're still very pleased. I do wish they wouldn't of gotten rid of the music class.
My children love scandia. The teachers have been very nice but..Due to recent budget cuts a large number of teachers were let go which resulted in much larger classes per teacher. My kindergartener has 28 kids in her class with one teacher! they also cut the music and pe classes. That's right no physical education classes. School itself is good but children will not be able to get much individual attention in class.
I am sorry to hear all the other bad reviews. Our son is in the language class. Before he started going to Scandia he wasn't talking very well. Now that he has been going his speech has improved a lot! He is starting to say words that I didn't even know he knew! I congradulate the teachers for all their help with our son!
My son attended Scandia for Kindergarten and we are looking forward to the new year. I volunteered in his classroom and it was a great experience. The teachers were fantastic and really had the students eager to learn.
We are very disappointed with Scandia. My children a 2nd and 5th grader started this year and it has been a bad experience. The behavior that is allowed is unacceptable it has been such a distraction for my kids. The parent involvement is almost non-existent. The PTA is a rag-tag group that has no motivation nor welcomes any new ideas. There is no sense of community here. My children will not be returning next year.
We are military and my kids have been to many schools. Scandia isn't a very good school at all. They never do anything different same fund raisers same field trips same everything. They don't have any family fun nights at the school. Maybe my expectations are to high but my kids have been to 4 different elementary schools and I would rate the other schools between 7-9. Scandia I would rate a 3. My son has 6th grade left to do at this school then he can move on to a great Middle School.
This school has been great in putting in more knolegde into my child.I am very happy for the outstanding teachers and the princepal and for teaching my two children for four years.Thank You. Sincerely Ignacio Family
This is my daughters first year at Scandia. I'm a acting volenteer in my daughters class and a new memeber to the PTA. I wish I could do more for the school. I think that parents should team up and earn this school more money so that our kids have the best advantage and education that we as parents can offer.
My children have attended Scandia for almost 3 years. The teachers have been exeptional. The staff is very helpful and does there best to help you in any way they can. I have volenteered in the classroom each year my children have attended. I have never had a teacher not want the extra parent involement. This is our last year at Scandia and we will miss it.
I have tried to participate in the classroom with providing assistance to my child and other children and the teacher did not any parent involvemtnt. I was told the union gives the teacher the option of allowing parent participation.
