    Most of my cousins have sent their children to this school so I decided to send mine there as well. I am very pleased with the school staff and students. My kids tell me they have a lot of fun there and they have been making straight A's throughout the year. They have the best teachers there that anyone could ever ask for.

    I really enjoy the school and all the extras the teachers and parents do for the kids. I think that it is a great school and would recommend them to others. I have a son with many sever allergies and the school and teachers have been great about dealing with the special situation.

    I was kind of nervous at first to send my daughter to this school. Now that she's been attending Firestone Elementary I'm quite relieved! She loves her teacher and classmates AND she loves her school! I personally couldn't be happier with Firestone Elementary. It's a great school with excellent teachers and staff.
