I like this school. I know for me I hate schools but not this one. Their academic programs are great. Especially the band. The teacher is funny and HE has very good teaching skills even though he is young.Their gym is old but good and so are the teachers. They care about the physical and mental fitness of these children. Parents are invovled but not as many as they should have. The Principal and VP are nice and understanding. This is a very good school.
