My son also has Ms. Davidson as his teacher. Ive notice in this short week hes been with to enjoy all the challenging activities they are working on. I love this school.
I love this school. My son is in the 4th grade magnet Program. It is excellent!! Ms. Davidson is a strict but very good teacher. They started a student vallet drop off at the front and back of the schools. That makes drops off so much easier and faster in the morning. The school is very safe as well, the only way to enter to the school is thru the front office.
