Kullerstrand has extremely exceptional teachers that have made a real difference in my son's academic career and personal growth. After attending schools in Lakewood, Golden, and Littleton, my son flourished w/ the talented and supporting cast of 4th-6th grade teachers. The supporting staff is also excellent, and this school is bright star in a neighborhood experiencing re-growth and re-development. I am so pleased that we found Kullerstrand Elementary and trusted them with our child's learning! Thank you Kullerstrand! My son is better prepared for the future - thanks to you! 5*'s!
