    I have been associated with Motley for the past 7 years with three of my kids attending. I truly believe in the teachers and staff at the school. They are always willing to go the extra mile for the students. That is hard to find. I love the school and staff.

    In the past 6 years Motley has been a very excellent school. My daughter loves her teacher every year. Everyone there is always available the principal is always on top of things and knows how to handle just about any situation that heads her way. I can not ask for a better learning environment for my children. Motley is awesome!
