  • My daughter started going to this school when she was on her 2nd grade. We relocated to this area. At first I was reluctant to enroll her in Towne but then after observing the other kids and talking to them, they are all happy. I also noticed that the kids are safe, there is fence all around the school and kids are not waiting outside the school premisses w/o supervision, there is always a guard at the gate before and after the school hours. The teachers are all very helpful and knowledgeable. The kids are always having fun because of the school programs - talent performance, awards ceremony, etc. This school is great and I recommend it to all parents.
