My son is finishing his 5th grade year. We've been a Sakamoto family since 2010. (2nd grade). The most solid thing about this school is it's administrative staff. The "front desk" woman mentioned in the previous review is neither rude nor inattentive. She has a great sense of humor. She is what makes ...  Read more

This is an amazing school. Everyone from the office staff to the teachers are just great. Due to bad experience at her previous school, my daughter was very apprehensive about starting a new school, she enjoys going to school again :)

My daughter started kindergarten this year and has had such a positive experience. She has a wonderful teacher, good friends, and the parents I have met have all been friendly and helpful. I have had an even better experience than expected sending her to this school!

My child has been at his school since K and she is now in 5th grade. She has had a great experience so far. Every teacher has been able to give her extra challenging work to meet her needs.

There seems to be a revolving door as far as principals are concerned. There have been four in the past six years. The climate of the school is totally dependant on the principal, so it changes each time there is a new principal.
