The school has a wonderful staff. The student can participate in chess and K-kids after school. It also has an award winning T.V. program that the students produce. My child went there from kindergarden to forth grade then excelled while in forth and was placed in fifth grade math. She was then able to skip fifth. She is now in eigth grade honors and is still at the top of her class. Go Griffin Eagles!
