    I am a grandma of two girls one in K and the other in 1st. I pick the girls up after school and watch them until mom gets home from work. I have not seen anything like it in all my years the way all the kids from every grade know each other and how kind they are to each other every day I look forward to picking the girls up not only because I can't wait to see them but also because of the feeling i get from these kids they are this happy community and they include me they all know who I am my name and always say hello like they mean it. Allis is an wonderful place for a kid to start life outside of the home.

    I as a parent think this is one of the best schools in Madison. It has wonderful teachers it has a great program at the end of the school year for 5th graders leaving. It is an awesome school that I would reccomend anybody and everybody to send their children to. I went to the school and my children went to that school it is just a joy to see some of my teachers and the classrooms.
