I love this school. I went here when they opened thirty plus years ago. The teachers are wonderful and the curriculum is first rate. (My third grade teacher is still there.... cool). The parent involvement is spectacular. The parents are eager and very involved. Excellent principal Mrs. Ferguson!!!
