School Reviews

5   6/2/2023
Phoenicia Elementary was an amazing experience for both of our children. One attended for 2nd and 3rd grade and the other was there for 1-3. Everything about this school was delightful. The faculty and staff are welcoming. The parents and community were very involved. We really felt a part of the Phoenicia Elementary family.
