Niwot Elementary School Reviews

I would send my children to Niwot Elementary again in a heartbeat. I couldn't have asked for a more effective, collaborative, and incredible group of teachers and administration to work with my children and teach them the basic skills they need in life - educationally, socially, and emotionally! The differentiation in place throughout the school from the students that struggle the most to the students that achieve at the highest levels is some of the best I have had the privilege of my children experiencing. You can't go wrong with Niwot Elementary! First class administration, teachers, and support staff!

Highly involved parent community is a double edged sword. If you want to influence which teacher your kid gets (because there are some great and some not so great teachers), you should volunteer at the school a lot and find the inner circle. Because of enrollment fluctuations, there can be big differences in class sizes grade to grade, which is great if you’re in a grade with small classes. Math instruction is mediocre. My son, who got As in high school level math as a middle schooler, was overlooked by Niwot’s gifted and talented program because of his standardized test scores (per his teachers). It was frustrating asking his teacher every year to spend 1:1 time with him to understand his math abilities, but noone would look past the standardized test indicator. He was bored and unchallenged. Science instruction in lower grades was mostly videos compared to a nearby school with a dedicated science teacher.
I am currently in high school, so I haven't been here in a while and don't know what changes it's undergone, but I can say that this is a very good school. They have good academics and are generally very welcoming, though sometimes they discriminate against the male students. When I decided to skip the fourth grade, they were incredibly eager to help me along. I'd had several incredible teachers there, and I hope that they are still there to educate and inspire the next generation of children. For a while when I was there, the administration was very strange but I believe that it has since changed hands and the principal after Mr. Kepler (I believe that was his name) was very kind. Good school, slightly strange environment.
