  • Skinner North Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Skinner North is an amazing school. The leadership truly focuses on the children learning to be their personal best. We were concerned that there would be a lot of pressure on the students to achieve, but that has not been our experience at all. Our child is thriving and loves going to school. The teachers have fantastic organizational skills, and the students have ample time to work individually, one-on-one with the teacher, and in groups. If you want to volunteer, the school welcomes parents, but there isn't any pressure to do so.. The diversity of the student body is really impressive. We are very pleased that the school celebrates birthdays and holidays without sugary sweets or food! The pricipal also recognizes the importance of physical education, and recently added PE time to the daily schedule. The art teacher is very creative, and comes up with master pieces! It's a really well rounded school.
