I love Michael D''arcy Elementary all my kids have attended. Since the new principal joined about 4 -5 years ago they are very active, very involved. All the teachers know us by our first name including the principal. During the Pandemic, they were all very thoughtful communicated great with us. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would.
