All three of my children have attended this school and we absolutely LOVE it. We relocated here when my oldest was in third grade. This was the BEST school she attended in her elementary years. My other two went here throughout their elementary years. Administration, faculty, and staff are all AMAZING!! This school has such a family-loving feeling and administration greets and creates relationships with all the students. FOREVER A DOLPHIN!

This school has really disappointed our family. Administration has gone downhill.
