Poe Elementary Classical School Reviews

By a Parent on

Poe Classical School is a fantastic learning institution. The teachers come early and stay late. The parents want the best for their children and prepare them for the challenging curriculum. Most parents are supportive to the staff and do not have hidden agendas.

By a Parent on

Poe is a school that looks good on paper.  If you have a daughter, she will do well at Poe.  If you have a son, he will have problems.  There is no male leadership at Poe.  This school caters to girls. This school does not guarantee progression to 7th grade to an academic center.  Your child may have to attend a neighborhood school for 7th grade.
