    I'm a grad of Armor and I'm now in college. Armor has given me the building blocks and self motivation for a successfull career as a student and as a person. The teachers are wonderful; i can still run into them and we remember each other. Students learn how to form student/teacher relationships where the teacher may be a friend but overall as your advisor and educator. Armor offered a variety of arts/sports/activities for students... there was never a dull moment. The grounds it's on is fantastic too big plot of land to run and play with very little traffic nearby. The playgrounds are nice as well. Oh and the field trips! Enough said... Armor just plain rocks.

    Armor Elementary is a wonderful school the teachers are well educated and really care for the children. The guidence counselor is exceptional they allow the parents to be involved as much or as little as they choose. I feel the only thing lacking is extracurricular activities the schools music program is wonderful.
