Our golf cart paths lead to parks, residential areas, retail areas. and local restaurants.

Crabapple Lane Elementary serves Pre-K - 5th grade including different support programs for students with special needs, remedial, and gifted. Our school has a strong parent volunteer base and these volunteers serve in a variety of capacities. They may organize the annual Fall Festival, help with book fairs, work with students in the classroom, or assist with our annual Red Bird Run. Our parents are very supportive and encouraging.
