Princeton Alt School
Develops empathy: Strongly agree

Community involvement, service and compassion for those less fortunate are the cornerstone of the intermediate grades. They focus on their personal place in this city, state and nation and teach students to develop that empathetic side of themselves.

Princeton Elementary is a fantastic school. I am glad my wife and I decided to send our daughter there. She transitioned from private school after 3 years to public school with no problem. I have always heard good things about Princeton and now I can speak on the goodness myself. My daughter and wife really like the 1A teacher and when they are happy I have no complaints. Princeton Elementary keep up the outstanding leadership is working. Proud Dad

I have truly enjoyed the continuing education my daughter receives at Princeton. This was our first year at Princeton (2013-2014) we came for a private school, K-3 through kindergarten; however, her transition to public school was smooth. She loves her teacher Mrs. Givens (1A) and so do my husband and I. Our daughter has excelled in all courses and enjoys the educational websites that motivates her to make learning more fun and a little challenging. Daily homework is just enough to where she maintains her other extra activities. Mrs. Ward is a FIRM, ASSERTIVE GENTLE GIANT. I'm glad to know she is more than a principal of a school but she is a lady with excellent leadership skills. As a parent I would recommend advancing your child, allowing them to test into this excellent institution. There will not be a school that is going to grant you and your child everything all at once and parents will not always agree with the educators in the school but if parents are eager to work with these skilled teachers, the PTA and the principal at Princeton at least you can learn how to get a better understand of your child's academic and life goals and how to guide and maintain them. GO PANTHERS!

Princeton is an awesome school. This is my first year with the school but I am very pleased with all the staff at the school. I wouldn't choose any other school for my child to attend.

My son started his elementary education here and that was the best decision my husband and I made to send him there. His sister will be enrolling into Kindergarten this year and we are so excited that they will be getting top quality education. Principal Ward is outstanding and her staff as well. The best school PERIOD !!

Princeton Elementary has been the best school for both of my children! I am constantly in awe h\as to how the faculty ensures that my children are prepared for the next grade level. Though Princeton is a relatively small school, our prestige is renown in the Birmingham area. My only desire is that we provide the students with more access to the arts. Currently, we only have an art teacher. We used to have a music teacher, but she is no longer there. I think exposing the children to the arts broadens their horizons, and makes for a more well rounded individual.
