    "In 2014, Kindergarten is still half day, which is complicated for working parents. Also, there is no before and after school on site. I must say I have been impressed with the one on one attention they give to each student. They get a chance to learn that their own speed. Each student meets individually with math and language teacher. My child is doing enrichment which, was not possible at catholic school."

    "While this school has some great teachers, the administration is strict and very unwelcoming. You are not allowed to eat lunch with your child, and they limit the classroom parties to only 3 parents per party. This is not a warm, fuzzy environment, which I prefer for ages 5-7. It's rather quite sterile. My children did learn quite a bit, but I have not been overly impressed overall. Parents are very involved in the PTO and do as much as allowed in the schools, so that is a plus and Mars is a great community."

    "Currently, the Primary Center serves morning and afternoon kindergarten (bus transportation both ways) and first grade. Murray is an excellent art teacher. Teachers now have to teach gym class instead of a gym teacher. Offers gifted support as early as kindergarten. Great music teacher."
