This school has been so great with my son who is adhd and has struggled til we found this school. The teachers and principle mr. quiggly are involved and very caring people who I cannot tell you how much they are truly appreciated. I also have other children in this school who have also thrived here. Whenever and whatever we have needed help they have been there for support.... Such a wonderful school!
