Mineral Point Elementary School


Parent Testimonials from 2020-2021

“My son’s teacher has been so communicative, open-minded, creative and flexible. They have tailored his work to fit his style, pace and needs, so he is engaged. We can see that if things are not working, we can adjust. We’ve been more than satisfied with the experience.”

“I really like the structure of having the assignment sheets and the schedule for the day.  Having the good fortune of working from home I get to listen in on some of the lessons.  Teachers have to be some of the most patient individuals on the planet.”

“As a parent of one of your full-time virtual learners, you have made the experience impactful and positive.  Even more impressive is that you had to design the experience in a very short window of time.  Each week our daughter experiences increased confidence, independence and is embracing virtual learning at a faster pace than we anticipated.”
