    We loved the PLC when are girls were going there! They did very well and loved it. The school was very hands on and kept parents updated on the children. A big difference compared to the Elementary and the Intermediate schools which we were not happy with.

    My daughter is in the PLC right now kindergarten. She has had a wonderful teacher and assistant. The principal gets involved which is nice to see. They do a great job trying to keep up with NCLB laws and keeping the kids up to speed with comprehension and reading so they get to the OES they are prepared. Need more math and science-in all the schools!
