5   12/9/2018
Sauganash Elementary is an incredible Elementary School. Lots of fundraising and activities for families and students. Mrs. Munns is fantastic and pushes teachers for excellence. Class sizes are large and the school zone is too large. Many children from outside neighborhoods which isn`t fair to the parents paying incredibly high taxes.Curriculum is intense and is more rigorous than catholic schools.
