Congress Elementary 5

Posted February 25, 2016
- a parent
This school is amazing. I was nervous for my teeny little girl to start kindergarten in such a big imposing building, but once inside it is bright, welcoming, and full of an amazing staff. She instantly was welcomed as part of a family, and was happy every single day. Additionally, as a parent, I was very impressed with her teacher and the principal. Both were kind and friendly, and updated me on her progress as time went on. She had the appropriate amount of work for her age - she was challenged and learned a TON, but not overwhelmed. Additionally, I could not believe she was taking Spanish and Violin lessons as well. What a unique offering, and she absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, I had to move out of state for work, but otherwise I would have been a devoted parent here for years to come.
