This school rates high academically and has a gorgeous large field by the playground, surrounded by trees and forest. The classrooms are nice, with big windows, and afterschool classes such as cheerleading or art are offered. Parents are very involved, and the PTA sponsors music, art, and computer classes ...  Read more

Our daughter has attended K-2nd with great results. The teachers are caring, the staff friendly, and the academic progress has exceeded our expectations. The PTA is responsible for several after school programs for music and art and many parents are involved in raising funds.

This is a great school. They have art, music and P.E classes. Parents can choose to help around the class or field trips. I think the school's teachers are great and my kids learned a lot.
