One of the reasons we moved to our specific area was so that our daughter could attend 7th street school, which she will go into fall of 2012. There is a threat of closing, and I am devastated. I will surely be moving, or else homeschool her if we lose this most wonderful amazing school.

It is a family environment. We all work together for the children. The teachers are outstanding and go the extra mile to ensure that each child gets the education he or she needs to excel in todays world.

My two grandsons just started at Seventh Street just a month ago and have felt very welcomed. It has been a good transition for them both. They have friends already and feel very adjusted to the school.

I have never seen a school where there is such a good working relationship between parents and teachers. It has to have a good effect on the students. I am glad that my grandchildren attend Seventh Street Elementary.

I love 7th St school for the nuturing environment they provide to my children. They know the children within the walls of this school not just what their grades are but who they are as individuals and what they are about. They promote a family friendly atmosphere. The teachers are very approachable and I sense they want my children to succeed and help them to do so. When your child spends the majority of their day in a setting you want to have the feeling they are cared for, at 7th street school Iam confident they are.

I love Seventh Street Elementary School because of the wonderful education care my nephew and his classmates receive. I am especially grateful that his love of reading is encouraged as he gets to read lots of wonderful books, and I'm impressed he has become such an amazing storyteller!

I went there and I want my child to remain to go there because it is a great school.
