We moved here from out of state before we started a family, thinking this would be a great place to raise a family, and we were right. The teachers take the time to get you know your child as an individual and as a complete family. They are always available to discuss any concerns or ideas that might benefit your child.

Both my children went through Conway Elementary and I cannot say enough! The building is warm, welcoming, and inviting! Staff care about students and families. The principal is always willing to listen to concerns and suggestions! Mount Washington Valley is a great place to raise kids and all our schools are stellar- I only happen to have experience with CES.

Conway Elementary is an excellent school, and there are many reasons why. For example, there was a recent incident where a child was found to have a weapon. The staff at CES handled the matter appropriately with complete regard for student/staff safety first. The principal and staff delivered swift and appropriate consequences, avoiding unnecessary hysterics from parents and the school community. As a parent, I was greatful for their good judgement, which ensured the safety of all students. As for our special needs children, CES employs the most gifted and skilled Special Education staff available in the Mt.Washington Valley. We are lucky to have their skill and dedication, as well as all the rest of the valuable staff. It's a great school...check it out for yourself!

We love Conway Elementary School! Mr. Hastings is a great principal and we have always felt supported by the teachers at the school. Our kids are doing very well and we are very proud to be part of CES. It's a wonderful school.

After moving to Conway from out of state. We enrolled our daughter in Conway elemntary. After 3/4 of the year was over we ended up pulling our child out and home schooling her for the remainder of the year. The staff didn't take our concerns seriously. we suspected our child to have learning problems and we tryed to get her help from the school to no avail.
