I don't think I've ever heard a complaint about the school, which is rare because parents love to complain about that kind of stuff. The staff and administration obviously go out of their way to make the school the best learning environment for the kids. 110% everyday.

Best elementary school in the upper darby school district. The principal and teachers are great. They really take a special interest in the children who go there. The school itself is well cared for and clean. Couldn't ask for a beter school.
