    I have a difficult time picking a star rating, as it really seems to vary with teachers. My child's kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Brammer was great! However, most of my other dealings with this school have been terrible. I completely agree that they are not equipped to deal with children outside the bell curve. I have one that is below and one above average, and neither one of them will benefit from this school. They want you and your children to be the perfect drone. So if that isn't you, I would look for an alternative. With that said, some of the staff is wonderful. The principal and assistant principle really care. Battle Ground schools were probably strained by huge population boom, but when it comes to my children's education, it is imperative for success, and the schools in BG aren't the best, at least not the one my friends, family and I have gone to. I am currently looking for a way out of this school, which is difficult and a shame. I am sure just as many kids that succeed here, but ALL of the kids deserve to succeed, so choose wisely when enrolling here.

    Don't judge a book by its cover! The outside of this school could use some beautification but we have lived all over the country and this school has one of the best principals and staff we have experienced yet. A couple of years ago I wasn't so pleased. This school is always keeping us informed on what's going on, the teachers are of the highest caliber, the principal seems to know every single student by name and every time school starts up again it's like going to a family reunion (a fun one :)) The front desk provides strict access to anyone entering, so bring your ID if she doesn't know you quite yet My kids love this school, their academic are appropriately challenging their teachers, and staff are gold nd truly care about the students. I highly recommend this school to anyone.

    We moved to BG because we heard the elementary schools were great. We moved into the Captain Strong district. What a disaster. The school does not seem to be equipped to handle students outside the bell curve. Either the very smart or the educationally challenged. Our first grade teacher was verbally abusive and hateful to students. The principal had no answers to problems. We no longer attend Capt Strong. There is no way I could recommend this school to anyone.

    This is our second year at Cpt Strong and I am very impressed with the quality of the teachers and the care that they have for the students. Each teacher has been very willing to work with me and lend a listening ear when needed. I can not express enough the appreciation of all the help they provide, especially this years teacher, Mr. Harvison.
