This is the best school in ST. Paul - The programs are well executed. The faculty and administration are engaged with the students. They treat each other with great respect. The kids have impeccable manners. They have been guided well. Their music program is comprehensive and inclusive. As an outsider who has visited many elementary schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul, I think this is far and away the best school.
