    My kids have attended this school for 2 years now. They are fortunate enough to have such great teachers who are willing to let me know how my child is progressing in school. I am impressed with their teaching skills and was amazed to see my child so eager to learn. The friendliness of the administrative staff is also impressing. Whenever I'm at the school I am greeted by my name & it's such a good feeling to know that this school is very people-oriented. Keep up the good work!

    Twenty-eight street elementary is a great school. My granddaughter attended this school from kindergarten through 3rd grade. I know that had it not been for the wonderful teachers there the formative years of her life would not have her where she is today. While attending twenty-eight street elementary my granddaughter was allowed to be that bright smart and creative person that we as a family admire. The teachers at the school have the whole child in mind when it comes to teaching. The principle was once a teacher so she makes the teachers feel at ease and she looks out for the best interest of the teachers so that they will take into consideration that teaching is more than just recieving a paycheck. If you have never visited the school I ask that you do visit before you make any comments positive or negative about the school. Go twenty-eight street
