    "This is the best elementary school in Richland 2, hands down. It all starts from the principal, Dr. Franklin. Her caring spirit and passion for children is spread through out the school and staff memebers. I am so happy my son attends this school. His reading and math skills are beyond his grade level and is now in the magnet program. Love love Love Polo Rd Elementary."

    "I recently moved to the area from district 5, so I was a little skeptical of the rumors about district 2. Polo Road Elementary has by far exceeded my expectations. My children love the school and the staff. I would highly recommend this school, as well as the Quest magnet program. I have no complaints and I am very pleased with my children's education."

    "Polo Road Elementary should receive a five star rating. It is an excellent, academic facility where all students are challenged. As a retired educator, myself, for over twenty-three years, I can easily recognize outstanding leadership, caring and devoted teachers, and a worthwhile and demanding curriculum. I have two grandsons attending this outstanding school and am thrilled with the opportunities provided to them. The principal, Dr. Marshalynn Franklin, expects the very best from her faculty, as well as her students. She is a role model for excellence as an administrator, who truly cares about quality education and how it can affect the future of her pupils."

    "I moved three boys from Private school to polo Elementary when we bought a new house in the area. The school boasts superior resources and an involved Teaching staff. Private School was a waste OF $$$. Our boys now test above their private school peers and more importantly they are having normal social contacts with their classmates. I am glad we are here."

    "I love Polo Rd. My husband and I are both in the Army and our daughter is in 2nd grade this year. She has been going to Polo Rd since Kindergarten and she loves all of her teachers. The teachers that she has had have a sincere love for the students and a heart for teaching unlike some teachers now days. The Principle is very personable and she is always willing to go out of her way to assist. Our next school will have a "big shoe" to fill."
