    I have a preschooler and a first grader at Houghtaling and we have absolutely loved this school. Unfortunately we have to move this summer and will be leaving this wonderful school. The teachers and principle take the time to listen to our concerns about how our kids are doing then we take a team approach to solving any issues that we have. Our kids are thriving here and we are so lucky this has been their first introduction to public schools. I feel they are set up to succeed wherever we are because of the solid foundation they have learned here at Houghtaling.

    This school is amazing! Every time I go in the classes are in order and the teachers are either teaching them or they are doing their work with their teacher asking them if they have any questions. I think this is an excellent school and will prepare them for middle school.
