Since my son came from a private to Nan Gray this past year, he has enjoyed school a lot more. His teacher was very nice, and the communication was so much better.

I think Ms. Davis has the best first grade class in the school. She is very caring and dedicated to the learning process of her students. Keep up the good work Ms. Davis we need more teachers like you. I just wish the principal of this school showed half the interest in the students.

I couldn't ask for more. The teachers are caring, intelligent, and always available. The school is clean, the grounds are beautiful. Everyone is organized and courteous. They teach the children to be polite and compassionate. Every child is special there.
