I love this school... there's very supportive teachers and a great PTO that's trying very hard to get kids, parents and teachers involved. Ms. Tamargo is a great principal. She makes time to meet with you even if she has a full plate for the day. Kids are wonderful.. I help out in the school and everyone makes you feel like you belong. There's a great school spirit in the school and they should all be proud to belong to Veteran's Memorial Elementary School.
