I went there for Elementary school years ago, and I very much enjoyed my time. The school was clean and new, children were cared for, and in general, I was very happy. I had a few issues with faculty members, however, I'm certain that if I had spoken up about them at the time, they could have been solved. The strong environmental "zero waste" efforts instilled great values in me for life.

Out of the 5 elementary schools my children attended as military dependents, this is the best school. We will always appreciate the strong academic foundation that PFE provided. The loving teachers who made learning fun were just a bonus. We were also fortunate to be a part of a school that won a green award. We love that they have a composting and recycling program that the children are hands on with.
I spent my elementary school days there. I wasn't fluent in English at the time and the esl program always overlapped with my English class. It wasn't the most useful and I find that my handwriting is bad because of it.
