This school is an under appreciated gem. The principal mrs laHaie sets a wonderful " tone" in the school. She demonstrates kindness and a genuine respect for her kids. Every single one of the teachers and staff also set this tone of kindness and positivity. I`m so happy that we transferred our son to this lovely school full of loving and patient adults:)
