    Both of my children go to Periwinkle and I absolutely love it. The school and staff are wonderful.

  • (7 years ago)

    This is an amazing elementary school especially for having nearly 500 kids. The positive attention given to the kids by the staff is extraordinary. It starts at the top with the best Principal and teachers who go above and beyond. If I lived in Albany I would want my child to go to this school.

    My children go to Periwinkle and we love it there! The principle is great and he is always there when I need to talk to him. He is very attentive to the children and their well being.I love my daughter's teacher's. They have been a big help. I have a disabled child and she has far past our expectation's with her learning. I would highly recommend this school. Thanks Tenille
