    Conte is a fantastic sxchool with great afterschool programs teachers and challenging programs. As a prent I love how nature and the environment are incorporated into all curriculum areas. Great school that has really turned itself around!

    This school has great teachers and administrators. They are caring and involved. Unfortunately since the top leadership has changed so much in the last few years (mostly because of the city) it has lost much of the momentum and excitement. I have not been involved since and can't wait to remove my children!
