Travis is a great school. My daughters both enjoy the school and teachers. The teachers are wonderful and you can tell they enjoy their jobs. We had some problems at the beginning with the cafeteria staff at the beginning but all was well. If I had any negative to say about this school is that the principal failed to responses to my emails. I attempted to get involve with the PTA and attended two meetings where I wrote my information to be contacted but no one ever contacted me.
