  • I have never had a problem getting my kids out of school early. The staff even went to the trouble of stopping my kids from getting on the buss 5min. before it was time to leave so my wife was able to pick them up THANK YOU. The office people are great especially Gina. When my children needed extra help they got it once again thank you . GREAT SCHOOL GREAT PEOPLE .

  • I have never seen a school like this one. The administration is very rude and have little respect for parents. I came in to get my child early and the woman in the main office was just totally unethical. She told me I should have called first before I came down. This was all of a sudden my father had just passed away and I wanted my daughter with me. The administration here shows no care and acts as though we, as parents, have no say. I am selling my house because of this, I no longer want my child going to a school that does not follow the naeyc code of ethics and one that is very rude when it comes to parents.

  • I cannot say enough about the staff at Solomon/Plains. Although grade schools are getting larger, our teachers still have the 'small school' mentality. The best way to have a terrific experience here...GET INVOLVED! Join the PTA, visit during visitation days, and attend school events.
