Towers Elementary School Reviews
My daughter is in the 5th grade at Towers. I am also the local babysitter (down the street from the school). The teachers are remarkable. They challenge the students and at the same time make learning fun. My daughter is at the top of her class and that is largely due to the great support from Towers staff and parent participation at Towers. Our experience @ Towers has been great and I Highly recommend this school!
