The principal, Mrs. Buchanan, is a hands-on leader. She is in the classrooms, the nurse's office, the halls, the playground. She is inspirational and encouraging and focuses on developing the whole child, not just the academic. The whole school follows suit. The one thing lacking is more parental involvement.

I have to admit that at first I had misconceptions about this school, but as I got involved and saw the amount of effort and work force and money that they put into it I can tell you that it is a great school. Now I love it, and my child is even happier than the school she was in before, which was considered ...  Read more
