    This school is an awesome hidden treasure in Travis! The principal has transformed the school and the teachers/staff are amazing. PS 26 is a Leader in Me school modeling great leadership skills to the students. My kids love it there. It has different classroom settings to address the special needs of children and great related service providers and SETTS teacher.

    The New Principal has made this Little Red Schoolhouse a wonderful place to work. The children parents and staff are truly a happy family and the school is thriving with its new motto "Respect Responsibility Rigor".

    Although there are problems with parents and teachers with the principal P.S. 26 is a good little school. Because of it's small size the children don't get 'lost'. My son got an excellent education there and was fortunate to have committed caring and skilled teachers. He has gone on to achieve Honors in one of the best high schools in the city and I believe he got a good foundation at 26.
