This is a great school. There are a lot of fun activities and parent support. Students' are challenged and learn about a variety of subjects: Language Arts, Math, Music, Art, etc. The teachers, staff and principal are amazing! I could not have asked for a better elementary school experience for my child.

It is an excellent school. My daughter has been there for 5 years and has had wonderful teachers. Two of them are Mrs. Lavelle & Mrs. Barth. They have been there for many years and have excellent teaching experience. I would definitely recommend this school.

S.T. has a group of exceptional parents that are involved in all fundraising & school functions. You have to be really involved with the school activities to find the 'good' teachers. The principal shows a pattern to be lenient with children with behavioral issues & points out insignificant things ...  Read more
