School Reviews

  • Recommended April 28, 2008 - I am a parent of a first grader and I could not be more satisfied with the school and the faculty. The classes are small and the indvidual attention to each student is outstanding. Mrs.Givons and her staff have created an environment that has the students full of school spirit and an eagerness to learn. They have done a great job at also getting the parents to wanting to be involved. I am looking forwawd to the future. - Posted by Parent
