New to the school system and very impressed. The teachers communicate with the parents on the progress of the student and involve the parents on every aspect of the student's development. Excellent academic programs and extracurricular activities.

Excellent School System with inner level teaching to meet the needs of all students. Music and art rate high in the daily program; with good opportunities for extracurricular language and other studies. Parents are welcome to be involved at whatever level possible; the more, the better!
