I love this school, my daughter has been going here for 3 years so far and I'm very pleased with the school. The teachers are all great that she's had so far, very involved, very easy to talk to, alot of parent/teacher contact. There isn't a time that there's a problem that I don't know about it, and also never a time when she does great that I don't hear about it as well. I highly recommend this school. Not only is the curriculum great, and the teachers wonderful, but the administration is caring and if there's anything that needs to be discussed or anything there are right there. They are constantly working at improving and working more with the parents. Great school, I'm so glad this school was recommended to me by a friend. We drive 10 miles every day just to make sure she goes to a great school, it's worth every mile.
