Congress Park thrives in diversity. My daughter not olny sees herself but so many other cultures to learn from. My daughter showed signs of difficulty with her reading and math skills, but thanks to the teacher and their programs my daughter is thriving.

Congress Park has some amazing teachers, dedicated to educating our children and willing to go above and beyond classroom instruction.

We called the schools recently and arranged to go in for a visit and meet with the Principal, Mr. Ward. We visited the school, we were there on time, but Mr. Ward had his assistant meet with us instead. The Assistant kind of rushed us through the process and wasn't very comfortable answering questions, and kind of got on the defensive for a moment . At first she didn't invite us to her office, but later realized that we have more questions so she did. When we got there, she obviously wasn't willing to give us much time! She tried to get us out of there and essentially she waited for a little pause and started greeting us good-bye. We figured that they are not easily approached, not very transparent, rather separating themselves from the community. Very disappointed. Teachers seem great though and the classrooms too.

EXCELLENT School. The teachers are wonderful and the new Principle has been Great! My daughter has really enjoyed the two year teacher program that was implemented. Makes 1st grade and easier transition into 2nd for our young children.

We have been part of this school for 3 years and have only positive things to say! Our eldest son deal swith a learning disability and the Congress Park School staff have completely EXCEEDED our expectations in helping us deal with our son's learning experience. We would, and do, recommend this school to everyone.
