The teachers at this school are invested in the students. We have been very impressed with the way our teachers and staff handled the distance learning classes during the pandemic. And major kudos to the teachers and staff during the transition to in-person classes. We have been fortunate to have awesome teachers so far for our young boy. Go soaring hawks!
