    My family has gone to Joseph K. Gotwals Elementary School. The environment is congruent to a productive student. The children's education is a priority and their safety along with their safety and well-being. Each child is encouraged and expected to do their personal best without being pushed too far to the point of failure. The staff works very hard to bring out the best in each child. Gotwals' staff brings out the best in each child while giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to excel in academics.
