    This school is excellent. I have 3 children that have attended 2 still there. 1 is in high school now and is in the Honor Society. This school should be commended for its dedication to the children of all backgrounds. All of my children have high reading levels for there grade. I credit the school for there hard work when working with the children.

    This is my childs first year at this school. Even though she is in Pre-K she is very well advanced than the other schools in Niagara falls. She has a wonderful teacher that shows a great deal of companion for each and everyone of her students. I would recommend this school to many. What a lot of parents done realize it is just not up to the teachers to teach your child as a parent we are all teachers. Liz

    Kalfas Magnet School is the Best Elementary School in all of Niagara Falls! I currently have three lucky children attending there. This is a school which is racially diverse and believes that we can celebrate our differences. The Principal Ms Coty genuinely cares for ALL of the children that attend her school and has an intelligent support staff. The teachers parents and staff dig into their own pockets to insure a well rounded education. The funding from the NF school district is too low to support such a wonderful school. I am well aware I have a choice of schools...I choose Kalfas!

    I have three children who are attending this school and I am impressed every year with the amount of intense but fun learning my children receive.
