Matthews Elementary School Reviews

We moved over 30 miles away from my husband's job to be in the Grain Valley district when my daughter started school. I'm very involved with the school on the PTA board and I have nothing but praises for this school! The teachers have been amazing and kind and so helpful. Mr. Pinney, the principal, is the most kind and caring and patient man and is always trying to make sure every student is taken care of to the standard that would make any parent pleased. I love Matthews and I won't be moving to another elementary district until all 3 of my kids have finished their 6 years at Matthews

My child was having issues with bullying. Principal did not seem to care. I just learned another kindergartener in my daughter's class was held down by 3 other boys and was kicked in the ribs several times causing injuries. Substitute teacher then refused to let child go to nurse. When principal was approached, he simply asked why the student didn't fight back against the other 3 boys. I can't wait until we can move to a different school district
