Having worked for a couple of different schools, I can attest that the staff at this school is like one big family and the students are like their children. We do our best to make school enjoyable while at the same time making sure the students have a rigorous instruction to help them learn and prepare for the future. This school also has a great history of middle school athletics as well. This is a great place to bring your child.
