    "Grove has literally transformed my child in less then one year!!! He attended another elementary school in the same district and words can not come close to expressing the significant difference. The Principal, Dr K has a true passion and concern for not only every student in the school, but also the staff. All of the teachers at Grove go over and beyond to make sure each of their students get the very best education possible. Most importantly, they pay close attention to students individual needs! My son went from not liking school, & not performing well (at his old school) to LOVING it in less then a year! His Map scores have skyrocketed since he has transferred there. My only regret is not making the move sooner and sending all my kids there. Five stars is not nearly enough to rate this schools excellence, as well as the staff. Dr. K is truly one of a kind. I wish there were more Principals like her!!"

    "We love Grove. Dr. K is a powerhouse! They have a strong program from the District, which is supplemented so that all students are challenged. It's a great place for your child, not only for the rigorous academics, but the caring atmosphere. It's a great place for your child. Exactly what a quality public school experience should be."

    "Grove Avenue School is the best. We entered Grove from a private school specializing in gifted children and I am so glad we did! We have had an excellent experience at Grove. Dr. K and her staff are awesome. They are caring, responsive, and energetic. Not only are the academics strong, but also the importance of teaching the whole child. My kids are challenged and encouraged to do their best everyday, in a very positive environment. Thank you Grove!"

    "I've been a parent of 2 children who attended Grove for a total of 6 years. What an extremely wonderful school with a top knotch leader (Dr. K). She knows every child by name and knows them as individuals. She builds such great confidence in them. The teachers are number 1. They show great interest in the children and build such great esteem. I am so glad my children attended this grade school compared to the others and my children love to go back, now that they've left, to see the teachers and principal and they are always warmly welcomed as if they never left. Thanks Grove Avenue School for being the awesome school you are."
