  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on February 07, 2007
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Prior to enrolling our son in a public school, we strongly considered to continue his private schooling. However, my sister highly recommended Langston. We met with the prinicpal, Ms. Becky Green and he has been excelling at Langston since kindergarten. They have been great to work with as a team on any issues that arise which is very comforting to concerned/involved parents. We have been extremely pleased with the teachers and their educational program!! Great school!!!
