The PTO is very organized and they do wonderful things. The parents are very involved, and that makes the kids do better in school and have a better experience.

My daughter has learned so much, and loves her school. The curriculum is wonderful, teachers care about their students, and parents are very involved. She has excellent teachers, and many caring aides. Mrs. Kelly is a great principal, and she knows the names of every child at her school.
