We are a military family and this is our first year at Plew. I have children in the first and third grades. They love this school, and I love the fact that the parents are involved and the teachers are great. Our whole family is looking forward to another year at Plew.

Plew has taken care of all 3 of my children; supporting the whole child socially, physically, emotionally, and academically. What a wonderful family school! Plew sees the individual child and fulfills their different needs and challenges them to reach their fullest potential.
