School Reviews

  • Recommended December 11, 2012 - The school is truly amazing. It does not have much money or technology, but it makes up for it in wonderful teachers and staff. The school is full of people who love children and education. The school gets better every year and I haven''t heard a bad word spoken about anyone or complaining. I don''t know what the parent from 2010 is talking about. I love the school! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended May 31, 2010 - Teachers are very immature. Children don't get enough exercise. They don't have a gym and they don't use their very small auditorium for inside activities for the kids. Teachers complain more than teaching so the children who want to learn suffer for the lack of education provided! - Posted by Parent
