Our principal at Addison School, our neighborhood public school, has fashioned an environment that fosters a love of books, learning, diversity, and good values that build strong character. I am so proud of our neighborhood school.

Addison school was a great environment for my girl. The quality of teachers was high, the extra activities offered after school hours were excellent, including math, foreign languages and music.
