We love Caywood Elementary School. We have found the staff friendly and helpful. I know that they care about the needs of their students and have made programs available for students that need extra help as well as helping students that are advanced to continue to grow. Thanks to the dedication and experience of our childs teacher, she was able to recognized his special need for advancement and with the help of the staff we were able to implement ways for him to stay focused and challenged at the same time.
