The students at Townsend were the best of the best from their prior schools, this makes them want to continue to be the best.

Submitted by a community member · May 18, 2016
There are teachers that truly cared for the students and their well-beings. Those that do not are either on tenure or removed. However, many of the best teachers have been let go due to budgets or retirement.

Submitted by a community member · May 18, 2016
