  • This school is wonderful. I graduated from Comly last year filled with wonderful memories. The teachers are outstanding and not one of them I disliked! I learned a lot, and looking back now I wish I could've stayed there for middleschool, unfortunately dreams don't come they? This school is wonderful! So wonderful that my younger sister is attending also!
