    Plummer Elementary school teachers and staff put a 110% into the quality of educating the students. Their discipline of the children is respectful and caring. They offer a large variety of academics and before and after school programs. Their goals for the students are planned out well for each child. Plummer is a family school and I am very proud and satisfied with the quality of education and care that they give our children. GO! PLUMMER!

    Plummer Elementary took the time to have a nice website at least. Some of the schools don't have websites like that and we don't know what is going on. At least they have a website with news and pictures.

    You can't always tell how good a school is by the rating system used. Each and every teacher and child make their own ratings. I am the grandparent of two students at Plummber Elementary. My grand children say this is a good school because they have good teachers and a principal that loves them. There mother LeAnne Huff is also in agreement with her children. Keep doing a great job Plummer. We support you!

    This school is wonderful! I have just recently started here but here is what I have observed so far Principal Gray is a hands-on principal and you see how intricately involved he is in the running of the school on a daily basis. He is passionate about his students' academics and their overall well-being; he's knowledgable and quick on his feet! You see him everywhere! The teachers I have met are outstanding and very creative. Imagine making peace doves out of paper plates! These teachers are simply incredible and are willing to share and collaborate. Instructional specialists are always coming by and sharing ideas and observing best practices. The afterschool tutoring programs are preparing the students for higher level challenges. They even have piano lessons! And if you can find a cleaner building let me know because the floors are shinny and spotless as those building engineers obviously care about the appearance of their school. Security is on serious duty and nothing gets by her! I understand that the cheerleading team members are in an exciting competition now. So If you are looking for a great school you should check Plummer out for yourself! It is really very nice.
