    My son has attended New Albany Elementary since Kindergarden I would not have him to change to any other school due to the high ratings this school has been able to achieve within the last couple of years.The parents are very active in all areas from recreational to academic.The accelerated programs are excellent in the school and they make it a point to find the best area of concentration for each individual child.The teaching staff are very caring in thier duties as teachers and also on a personal level with children with problems not only in class but with personal experiences.Each child whether they are Excel students or slow in catching on are treated in teaching within their on level.Teachers here are always concerned and quick to inform parents of problems with there child in studies.My thanks to you for making this such a fine school for my child
