I don't think you will find better 4th grade teachers as well as music and P.E. teachers!

My daughter started Kindergarten at City View this year and we absolutely love the school. The principal, Mr. Burgoon, is fantastic and we love her Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Smolky. The teachers really pay attention to the progress of the students and they keep my daughter happy and challenged. I don't have enough positive things to say about City View. Love it!
