I was guaranteed that my child would be watched , cared for, and guided in the right direction. I was also told that his growth and well being would be attended to because each child is seen as a special gift from God. I am happy to share that I feel a great sense of comfort and trust at this school. My child has changed tremendously. He believes in himself I think because I see others believing in him.
