I have two children attending this school, and I am very pleased with it. They have plenty of programs for the children. The faculty so far has been excellent, has had no issues so far.

The school needs to work on the academics more. On a scale of 1- 10 we are a 2 .This school is on academic probation ,because of the test scores need to come up more .

I believe this could be a great school if the communication is better between the faculty and the parents. It doesn't provide any activities for the children. Now they want to discontinue bus service for small children!
