My child really enjoyed this school. She woke up each day with a song on her heart and anxiously awaited for the music class that Dr. Peggy Owens allowed after school with Mr. Daniel Dry. The choir loved Mr. Dry and so did I. He was an amazing teacher. We missed him when he left. His music has influenced us as a family the school community and the city!

Had to transfer my son out of this school. After Dr. Peggy Owens a great lady and the former principal retired this year did not start off well. Most of the teachers and staff also left over the summer break. The students are marched down the hallways with their hands clasped behind their backs making them seem like they are in hand-cuffs...no way to treat babies! I wish Greeley well but my son's education is very important to me and I needed a school environment concentrated on education and safety.
I am very impressed to have my son in a school where teachers are not afraid to teach anymore!! They expect respect from each and every student and they receive it. Being the parent of a kindergarten student with a few health issues I was relieved to see such one-on-one teacher/student...principal/student connections at all levels. Teachers from other grades even know my son's name! They are very receptive to special concerns and the students seem to thrive in a small school community. My son is excited to go to school each day and he's excited to learn!! Ms. McClary the kindergarten teacher is exceptional! Dr. Owens the principal has her finger (and her heart) on the pulse of the school! I cannot commend this school enough!!
