Vanessa F.: I have had two children go through this school, one in this school now, and one yet to start. I actually really like this school and most of the people in it. Everyone seems to really care about the kids, and the parents too. I think that's missing in a lot of schools now. There needs to be a sense of community, a kind of "we're all in this together" mentality. It really does take a whole village to raise a child, and this school, the teachers, aides, administration, and even the lunch servers seem to understand this.
