Price Elementary is a very good school for children. Principal and Teacher always motivate children to do well all throughout the school year, not only during testing time. Children are always looking forward to going to school. The reason I enjoy having my children attend Price is because it is a good atmosphere and always greet children before and after school. Attention is given to the students from the moment they walk in and parents are greeted as well. One thing that they can improve on is having more activities which involve parents and students.

Price Elementary is an awesome school. I had a lot of fun. I even told my mom when I graduated, that I was seriously going to miss this school. They actually made learning fun and that's what is all about. You need to find a school in which you know that your son/daughter will want to go everyday no matter what.
