There is an active and strong PTA that provides ...  Read more

Prestonwood is a great school; both my kids are so happy there, and learning a ton. There is definitely an emphasis on math and reading/writing, but the music curriculum is also very good. The mix of kids is wonderful, and there is a warm, friendly atmosphere.

Wonderful teachers with amazing staff. This school is a gem. The principal knows every kid by name and there is a real sense of community. An overabundance of parent invovlement puts this small school over the top!
