    Temperance is an amazing school with a rich learning environment. Everyone who works there is a caring dedicated professional from the wonderful school secretary to the lovely ladies in the cafeteria. The teacher are top notch and the principal is caring thoughtful and engaged. All three of our children have attended Temperance - one still is - and it is the best school in Amherst County by far.

    Temperance is a great school! All of the teachers are excellent. With only one class per grade everyone knows each other and it is like one big family. We live out of zone and I choose to still drive my daughter every day because it is the best!

    I love this school! We moved here from Portsmouth Va and it was a huge change. A delightful change to be exact. There is only 1 classroom per grade & the teachers are outstanding. The whole staff are wonderful. The secretary remebers everyone even after meeting them only once!
