    This is my daughters fourth year attending Park Avenue we both enjoy and think very highly everything about the school. The principal has done an awesome job & the teachers work well with all the students. For us coming from a different school district we are privileged and honored to be able to be apart of the school. Thank you Park Avenue keep up the good work!!!!

    The principal and teachers really care about the students. My son has enjoyed his time at Park Ave and will miss it next year when he moves on to Jr. High.
