    My school is Colonial Elementary School. My great-granddaughter is a 3rd grade student there. She seems happy at school and with her teachers. She is a good student. I have seen their curriculum on line and have seen some of my great-granddaughters school work. It seems extremely well presented and able to teach the children to achieve high levels of learning. I am glad my "little girl" is going to this charter school

    Because the staff care about the kids. They educate them far more than I was when we went there. The community at the school pull together when there is a need. Example deaths and house fires children in need.

    The most caring and organized principal I have ever been associated with. That caring definitely filters down to the teachers and in return to the children. My son has never enjoyed school until attending Colonial Elementary
