School Reviews

5   9/30/2019
Teachers are well educated and provide safe learning environments with a high-quality education for a great variety of students. An after-school program is offered, and gym classes and intermural athletics are provided for students and families. Music classes and art classes are offered as specials, and chores are conducted in the morning before the school days start. I had great experiences and made wonderful memories at Momot Elementary !!!!!! My previous elementary educators have inspired me to go for early childhood education as my major in college, and I hope to join a school environment as positive and impactful as the one I grew up in when I teach in the future.
