Price has some of the most patient,caring and loving teachers!! My son has been here for 3 years. Mrs. Gantz and Ms. Honeywell are truely wonderful!!! I was nervous about him going here at first but I''m so glad he does!! And although we love and miss Mrs. Nemeth from last year, we really adore Dr. Krane and Mr. A!!! Even the secretary Mrs. Helm, who''s been here for YEARS, is cool!! They are all truly a blessing!! Keep up the good work!!!!
