Rating went down from 9 to 7 major reorganization is needed in this school.

Excellent school and staff, only problem is there is no bus service for Pimmit Hill residents, older kids can walk but for kindergartners is a challenge. Planned rennovation hopefully will make it spacious and provide more parking.
