This is a wonderful school that truly cares about children. We have had nothing but a postive experience. The staff always goes the extra mile for every child. I have seen them spend long hours working with a child in need and also those that need extra enrichment! The parents are always welcome and encouraged to come up to the school to help in the classroom. The Principal is wonderful she greets the students and parents by name every morning. I have always felt at home when I step in the door! I am not sure where the parent that made a comment in June of 2003 is coming from. I have to wonder if she or he had some issuses concering attendance the school is required to take action according to state law. Aren't we all just looking out for what is best for all children. If parents won't do it I thank the schools for making parents accountable for their childs attendance! Let's not bash a school that cares about every child's future! Thank you Tanglewood for providing a wonderful learning enviroment for my children!
