Great school! My  daughter is in 2nd grade and has been in this school since preK and my son is in preschool now and they both love their school. The teachers are very nice and helpful and my kids learn a lot of stuff every day!

I love the children and staff they are always looking out for their students best interest. The Princple and A.P are always up to something, not in the interest of parents or staff. This will be a great turn over with incoming principal hopefully it will be better for all. Only some parents are will to help out while others complaine and do nothing
