The elementary schools are amazing accordin to my siblings. But I do see that they are so friendly and inviting, They just have a great environment in general. As you move into high levels of education though the facilities become more drab and also more dysfunctional.
Cheltenham School District is a good school. The teachers are helpful, the classes go on for days (the list), and we are able to have more trips and opportunities this year and the upcoming years. That’s from all of our fundraising every week.
