I attended this school from when it opened in 2002(2003)-2008, and it was a great school. I loved my teachers, and the staff knew me well, and I knew them well.

It seemed that when my kids started at this school four years ago, it was going to be a good enviroment for learning and growing.

not impressed with any part of this school. Never have been. The principal seems ok at first but when you have a real concern she ignores you.
