Open Quote We have a large family and decided to move to Puyallup based on the great reviews as a district. Our two oldest daughters did not attend Karshner but our two youngest have. I can say this will my our last year here. We have been at the school for many many years and to be honest these last three years have been horrible. The leadership at this school sucks! The kids are afraid to speak in the halls, laugh, or even color. What has happened to this once beautiful family friendly school? I hope it is not a thing of the past. The Principal has much to learn about being family orientated. She micro manages the teachers, staff and kids. I truly wish she would leave. Close Quote

Open Quote I have three daughters that went to Karshner Elementary School. All three of my daughters had a good experience there, except for the last couple of years that my youngest daughter went there. The principal there is a real trip, and I for one don't appreciate her at all, thank you. I wish that you could have done better than her. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
