If security were not aware next time tell them because I am sure they would have taken care of you. They are constantly helping and aiding if necessary all over the school, at all times, on all floors.

My school is a wonderful place for your child. You will not find a more committed team to share with you in the education of your child.

When I went to 129 years ago it was a very good school. My greatest memories of school were from there, however, recently I have been looking into schools for my 5 years old and I am extremely unimpressed with 129. The Parent Coordinator is the absolute worst. I'm still waiting for return phone calls ...  Read more
