    We have sent 4 children to this school over the past 4 years and it has been a great experience. All the teachers have been excellent the principal is very involved and each child knows her and she knows them on a first name basis. Our oldest two have been in the gifted program which has served them well. We have received orders to San Diego and I can only hope to find a school as good as this one.

    I have had three children go through this school. They are fantastic. Their academic and gifted services are superior. The teachers communicate well. The principal is fantastic. The nurse is also wonderful. I cannot tell you how much I love the office staff. We are a military family and have spent the last 6 years in this school. My youngest currently in 2nd grade is sad to leave as we are retiring. My children loved every one of their teachers here. My oldest left elementary school for a magnet middle school in NPS and was well prepared if not above average for the program. I cannot say enough about this fine school!

Everyone at Tarrallton is great ) The office ladies are awsome at getting you the info and help you need and the teachers are very good with communicating with the parents. Very pleased with the whole school.

    My daughter has attended this school since 3rd grade and I have never had any problems. They teacher/parent communication is great! They are willing to help all their students. My daughter adored each teacher she had. She is currently in 5th grade and she will be sad to leave. i also agree that all emails are answered promptly. Not to mention the school trips they have and fundraisers which are always fun for students & parents too. We are glad we moved into this area and found this great school!

    My eldest child attended this school from 4th-5th grade. My younger son has spent 2+ years in this school. The teachers are fabulous. They have excellent relationships with the students. I love that my son's teacher will email me back in a drop of a hat. Parent-Teacher communication is wonderful! The Principal is always 'in the know' and also has excellent communication. The office ladies are fabulous. This was a great change from Willoughby Elementary. They have the only rock climbing wall in the district!
