Our children have been going here a few years now and our experience with this school has been great. They like their teachers and the homework is rather light and stress free so far. They`re also bright and like to keep busy, but are not involved in extras affiliated with the school. Four stars.

Good school as far as I can tell and my kids are happy. Disorganized morning drop off is my one complaint. Staff on drop off duty will literally just stare at the long line of cars full of parents who are waiting for a sign or signal to get things started. No one seems to know what`s going on. Is it so much to ask for a simple blow of a whistle or a hand in the air, SOMETHING, ANYTHING to officially commence drop off? It`s ridiculous and I can`t help but wonder what other organizational issues the school may have.
