My kids love going to school and i am impressed with their academic progress. I love the mixed culture and the obviously caring staff. Off course I would like to see more extra cullicular activities and special programs, but the basics are great, now WE need to work on the icing on the cake.

My children have attended this school for 5 years and I've seen some good and not so good factors. More support to the curent Administration is needed.
