Lozetta Hayden: This school is a blueprint of what an excellent educational environment looks like. The principal sets the tone by supporting her staff, parents and students. Throughout the building it is apparent that everyone enjoys being there and works as a team. My children have attended this school for the last five years and I do not remember having one issue. Both special needs and gifted children receive intervention. Students are taught to "inspire excellence" and this is evident in the way they respect each other and work towards their goals. Kudos to everyone for making this a school par none.
