    My child has two years of schooling at Applewood. Unfortunately previous school attended was Towslee. Thank goodness we are now part of Applewood Elementary !!! My child has loved this school from day one the teachers staff and Principal are always helpful caring attentive productive and treat students equally and like their own family. Instead of seeing a child with tears failing grades self doubt confusion etc. which we experienced daily at the previous school. Instead my child has positive feedback every day she now loves learning and is in a positive enviorment and her teachers have provided a path to success. As a mother who was desperate to get help for my child for an entire school year but was failed by (prev) schooI couldn't the help of Applewood's incredible professionals teachers

    Applewood is a teriffic school. The teaching staff is very helpful. They are quick to listen and offer suggestions for those children that may struggle from time to time. Our son has a learning disability and we could not be more pleased with how the school has handled his education.
