I love this school. The teachers and staff are friendly but firm in oreder to protect our children from outsiders that come to disrupt classes and/or check out students they are not authorized to take. It is a clean and fun learning enviornment that promotes all areas of student life!!!

Would not recommend this school. Teachers are not friendley and not prepared. Teachers do not want any parent involvement. This is why public schools are losing very good students to private school. I have always been in support of public until this school.
