School Reviews

Excellent school with very involved and professional principal. Activities are VERY organized, excellent communication keeping parents in the loop. The staff is great, school is clean. I will be very sad when my daughter has to leave for middle school next year. This school takes pride in being top notch. They do so much for the children with field trips, extracurricular activities, award ceremonies each quarter. I love this school and so do my children. I'm very thankful this school was a part of their childhood and development. I couldn't ask for a better school.
