    I love preston! The principal is remarkable! He inspires all students gives them encouraging words on a daily basis and for the past three years that he has been at this site their has been a tremendous growth in the students test scores. I am privileged that my children has had the opportunity to attend preston. The teachers care about the students and the community and want each child to succeed. Parents have an open door policy so if we want to sit in and visit the class as long as we check in at the office its great. I love prestons teachers staff and principal! Keep up the good work.
