School Reviews

Excellent teachers and staff. Even though they are a large school I feel that they were already familiar with my children by the orientation night. Extra curriclulars for every student. My kids don't participate in sports but have had interactions with the coaches. They seem to be really engaged with the students. One of my children went from a catholic school with only 24 in her whole class and had no problem transitioning to the larger school.
