I have encountered teachers who truly care about their students. The current principal is very involved with all the students even as far as knowing most of the children's names. Very impressive. The tutoring program is also excellent and has helped my child improve dramatically.

My son has been at Plympton since September 2007 and could not have had a better experience for his first year of elementary school. His teacher has been amazing, he is reading, but most importantly he is excited about learning, and looks forward to his school day. The thriving PTO is terrific as well!
