“I think Poplar Academy is a great school!

I think this because the teachers are always friendly and willing to help if you struggle. There is always a bucket load of activities you can participate in such as the Blarefees and the school birthday.


The office ladies are always open for hugs which I extremely enjoy. The principal will always assist you when you need it and is a very lovely person. These are reasons I LOVE Poplar Academy.”
