Imperial Elementary School Reviews
I just absolutely love Imperial Elementary School. My child is learning quickly and enjoys going to school every morning. The teachers and office staff are great. It is a lockdown school, so I am not concerned with safety issues that I see in other schools (not that other schools are not concerned with child safety). The PTA keeps the needs of parents and children in mind as they come up with reachable goals for PTA success. The principal and teachers are very willing to work with parents and I think it is great to see such commitment.
