My daughter is currently in First grade. To be honest she is a challenging child full of high energy and spontaneous actions. I believe the staff has done an excellent job at helping to redirect her personality into positive behavior. The VICE Principal is EXCELLENT. I love the activities and programs ...  Read more

The school has come a long way since our arrival in 2008 my child has had wonderful lower grade teachers. Various trips and exposure to multiple arts and activities make this school special.
