  • Earhart Elementary Opt For Knowl School reviewed by a parent

    Although there is a lot of work, I love this school. I have had 3 of my children attend Earhart. They each had an easy transition to high school. The teachers work extremely hard and some of them go above and beyond their responsibilities as a teacher. I have known many of the teachers to spend an ample amount of their own money when funds or supplies were an issue. They are definitely underpaid for all that the district now requires them to do. You will find many of the teacher after school, mentoring, preparing and still working. I wish they had more programs but I know as a small school, funding can be an issue. My children loved their teachers and even continue to stay in touch with them. The school shares the same high expectations I have for my own children. I would suggest this school to parents who are looking for a school that is safe and will push your child academically.
