The teachers at this school work hard and really care for the kids. There are a lot of young teachers, but they certainly work hard and seem to get the kids better than the older teachers. I really like the activites they have for the older students. Student council, kinder buddies, musicals, field trips to forest park and field day are great. I reccommend this school.
