This School is incredible. The teachers are great and truly place the children first. I don't understand why more schools do not have uniforms. It is nice to leave society at home and create an environment where learning comes first. The Administration is easy to talk to and very helpful in any question you may have. There is a good deal of parent involvement at this school also.

We pulled our child from this school before she even attended as they refused to work with us regarding one item on the dress code and how it would aggravate a skin condition our child has. We were told that other people at the school had a similar condition and they just put up with it. No child should have to 'put up with' an aggravated skin condition just to satisfy this school's rigid and outdated dress requirements. If this school is that inflexible over a health condition, it may be safe to assume that they are equally inflexible on other issues as well. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.
