We're very grateful that our daughter attends Paxtang Elementary School! She has had excellent, caring teachers who invest in their students. This diverse school has an active, enthusiastic PTO and many great school-community programs and events. Paxtang Elementary school is a neighborhood school with a large population of students who walk to school. We are grateful to the principal, teachers, parents, and students who make this a great school!

I was a former student at Paxtang, and I love the school so much. Everyone was so friendly to each other, and the staff knew everyone in the school. They have awesome extra. activites like the band and orcastra. No elementary school here in the west has a band at all! Parents are always getting involved and love helping with the kids. I would love for my future kids to go to this school. I absolutlely love it.
