Harriet Tubman is a great school. Wonderful staff and parent involvement is superb.. Most of all the principal is outstanding. She supports her teachers and students. What is school without great support from the leader. Thank you for being apart of my childs life. I love you all.
My son has attended Harriett Tubman since Pre-K. He is now in 1st Grade and I must say that I am extremely glad that he is a student. The faculty is excellent and everyone from security to teachers including the principal is very active in the daily lives of the students. Ms. Ramos, Thomas, and Ms. Kilgore were and still are very inspirational in my son's education both academically and psychologically. One of the greatest asset of the school is the feeling of safety and security that it expels. The parent liasion Ms. Benet and the school nurse Ms. Richardson are also wonderful assets to this great school. I am truly impressed and thank-ful for everyone at Harriet Tubman.
