This is a great school! The teachers are all caring people..They need more gifted classes though. My 2nd grader's teacher does her best to keep my child challenged and my kindergartener loves her teacher and the school.

This school should be rated a 9, they are one of the elite in test scores in the State of Alabama for K-4.

My daughter had to attend ...  Read more
