    We just moved to Pennsylvania from Indiana over the summer (due to my husband's job) and our daughter started Kindergarten a few weeks ago. I cannot say enough good things about the faculty and staff at Bon Air Elementary!!! They are so devoted to the kids and their education...we are blessed to have moved to this district -)

    Excellent school wonderful teachers and principal beautiful newly rennovated building - like new. Smartboards in classrooms new computers terrific gifted program. They really take advantage of all the academic possibilities here - using local college students as student teachers encouraging students to attend extr-curricular activities at PSU and CMU campuses. Immpressive all around.
