This school is amazing. Not only does the staff provide a comfortable environment, they go out of their way to provide a safe one. Each morning, many of the staff remain outside monitoring children, making sure they cross the street safely. They are encouraging and it clearly shows in the children. They go out of their way to offer positive encouragement. Overall, the school is warm, the staff is caring and engaging and the children are happy. I have found some of the best teachers and assistants in this school and my children absolutely love it.

As a former student and mother I highly recommend that you DO NOT send your child here. They do nothing when bullying happens. The teachers and administration do not care for the children and the way they teach os mediocre at best. Rules are not enforced. Just don't put your child through this.
