    Radium Elementary School is the best public elementary school in Albany. I know that my child is kept safe and she learns well there. I know that she is happy and in a good school. When she is sick she still wants to go to school. The entire staff is professional and always friendly.

    This school has been wonderful. The teachers are willing to communicate as well as the staff. The office staff greets you and is kind when you enter. Mrs Gail Griffin is very skilled at what she does and Mr. Bowels the ass't principal knows children.
