I am so pleased by the progress my son has made while at Charlestown Primary School. The teachers work hard and the principal is very involved. We feel lucky to have such a great school.

My daughter loves all of her teachers and they have a lot of hands on and different activities than other schools, they simply just do more with students.

My family and I moved to New Hampshire a year ago and we have never felt so welcomed to a great school like this. We have had the best support for our children. We know that we made the best decision for our children:)
