    I have felt safe and comfortable in Calabro for the past six years. I have come to see the school as my home away from home because it is where most of my friends are and there are teachers that love and care for me as if they were family. -written by a student

    Because of difficult circumstance my son began Kindergarten three weeks into September and we were not only welcomed with open arms but they made a point to consider greatly our situation. All of the staff (without exception) made a point to acclemate my little guy to the kindergarten program and meet everyone in a friendly welcoming way. They are right on track or above where they should be in learning. I have nothing but praise for Calabro.
