Ponderosa Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

December 05, 2017 Submitted by a parent
We transferred from another school in the district to Ponderosa this year. It is our neighborhood school. I really like my daughterΓÇÖs 5th grade teacher because sheΓÇÖs very passionate about teaching and pushes the students hard. I havenΓÇÖt been as impressed with my daughterΓÇÖs second grade teacher. There hasnΓÇÖt been any differentiated learning from what I can tell and I feel like sheΓÇÖs not being challenged enough. We havenΓÇÖt been at the school for very long so maybe itΓÇÖs too early for me to judge but I havenΓÇÖt seen very much parent involvement. I also feel like the school promotes pacers more than strong academics or good character. The school has a laid back feel and is not the most warm and welcoming school I have been in.

My Daughter attended Kindergarten at Ponderosa. We LOVED her teacher! But the school does put a lot of pressure on the kids to do the pacer program (although it is optional) which is walking or running laps on the track during lunch/recess. My child was frequently left out, because she was slower than a lot of the other kids. And she didn't want to just play on the playground because she was taught that getting pacers is top priority! I wish they only had a few "pacer" days out of the week. To give the kids some time to relax and have fun.Also, the parent involvement is non existent. The PTA did very little thru out the year. They were not friendly or encouraging an only hosted 2 events (which were below average) My child did learn well though.

The teachers and staff are very nice and always helpful when I have questions. They are very focus on encouraging kids to be more active, and receive rewards for exercising during recess. My kids have learned well what s in the curriculum for Idaho, but I think there is space for more academic activities in the school. The science fair is the only after class activity during the year that involves academics, and it s very underwhelming. I think the PTA and the staff do the best they can with the little help they get from parents and the state. Overall, is a nice environment, they are very pro-active on preventing bullying, and my kids are very happy in the school.

Ponderosa Elementary puts emphasis not only on the academics of children but also the health of children. The school is known for its ever popular Pacer Program. Children have the option to spend their recess time running on the pacer track. Children are given pacer sticks after every lap which they turn in to get marked off on their 25 mile pacer card. Incentives are awarded after every 25 miles. As an example, my son has earned three necklace charms representing each of his 25 miles this year. For running 75 miles total, he has the opportunity to attend a special Summer Wind Skippers assembly. As a result, he loves school and has a positive self esteem due to his achievement. I have also experienced excellent teachers and an engaged principal.
