    This is my sons first year in school. The transition to school was great thanks to the great staff and his teacher. My son is in kindergarten and I was so nervous leaving him the first couple of weeks. His teach mrs. Traylor is awesome and very involved in the children's learning process. The bus drivers are so nice and makes sure the kids get home safe and in a timely fashion. I look forward to spending many years at this school.

    I love this school. My daughter attended Kindergarten here. The staff is very professional and dress according. The children have multiple options for lunch and the breakfast is free to all children (2011-12). The ACE Program is also available to those needing after school care. The children receive a great amount of time in the gym art class and the library. Every visit has been very welcoming from the front office assistants all the way down to the janitors. My daughters' teacher (Mrs.Traylor) was amazing. She had the ability to work with each child and adjust to their different personalities. This school also has a school nurse on site. The things I loved most about this school is that it is very multi-racial and they take education very serious. The only thing I would recommend the school change is the parent techer communication. They send alot of papers home for different programs and classroom events. I think parent emails should be sent to those who have a preference for that.

    This is our first year at Callaway. Our son is in the first grade but seems to love the school and really enjoys his teacher.
