The more involved the parents are in this school the better the experience for the children. Small room sizes, great teachers, what more can a parent ask for.

Excellent school. It's a one school/one district public school with class sizes of a private school. Teachers give students personalized attention and learning plans.

I h2ve had children at this school since 2003 and love it. I like the small size of the school and classrooms. The teachers are great. The Parents Club is amazing and does wonders for the children that they aren't even aware of. It's easy to love a tight knit community that takes care of its children.
