    Scarcelli Elementary is exceptional. The principal is involved with the student body the teachers and staff care about their kids and know the kids. Over the years I have recognized the extra efforts of teachers to challenge my children academically. The school environment is peaceful for children no bullying is tolerated. -a parent

    I am the parent of two children that attend Scarselli. Teachers at this school are very caring and hold high expectations for all students. The principal is wonderful and involved in all aspects of the school. The PTO is involved and my kids feel safe at school. I couldn't ask for a better education for my kids!

    My son had a very positive experience at this Blue Ribbon School and the teachers were wonderful and provided plenty of uplifting opportunities for learning. The music art and sports programs were adequate. I was always encouarged to volunteer at least monthly for school/PTA activities and field trips.
