We had 2 kids graduate from PAES, one attended since 2nd grade and the other since Kindergarten. The Teachers are great and care about the students. I wish the current Principal was there the whole time my kids were there. He is an amazing Principal that cares about the kids. He has made lots of upgrades to make the campus beautiful! If you want a school where your kids matter and you feel like part of the family check out PAES.

My kids attend PAES and it is an excellent school. The Christian environment, teachers who go the extra mile, well rounded academics and extracurriculars have made a big difference in our family's life. School is a place my kids want to be and that says everything!!!
