The principal Mr Orlando and the Assistant Principal Ms. Szumigala are awesome! They really care about the children. I would see Mr. Orlando EVERY morning and afternoon waving to parents as they drop the kids off and pick them up. I was even able to talk to him BRIEFLY if I needed to without an appointment. We never had any problems with other students or teachers. Parent involvement is really high! Teachers, administrators and even office staff have been very helpful. The curriculum is great compared to other schools in Erie. Unfortunately, the curriculum in PA is behind other areas of the nation so we are leaving the state. Other than that, the school, neighborhood and everything was absolute great. I have a 7th grade honors student and a 2nd grade honors student there who had been there for the past two years. ~Ebony
Connell is great! It looks great too.(just got remodeled)I've been there since kindergarden and still love it. Most of the kids are easy to get along with and the teachers show great quality. Connell's the greatest!
