Dieringer School District Reviews

3 reviews
My children have gone to Dieringer Heights and Lake Tapps Elementary for 5 years. The schools are gorgeous and well laid out with excellent staff and a great curriculum. It is very traditional. A place where kids can just be kids and focus on academics. It is pretty diverse, modern, but also keeps the basic/traditional manners/value/feeling.

Our family has a child at each of the three schools in the district. We are very happy with the education our kids are receiving. We are equally pleased with the communication, leadership, extracurricular options, level of parent involvement and overall sense of concern for the safety and well being of my children. We have been blessed with teachers who happily go above and beyond what is expected. In many ways, this public school district is like getting a private school education. We are very thankful to have found Dieringer school district.
In general, the school district was good. I felt like I learned a lot from until I entered middle school (North Tapps). I believe that the administrative team was very unorganized, thus making events quite pointless because there was never a solid purpose.
