I'll be straight to the point. This school is good. Most of the teachers I have had had are amazing! She had one that wasn't a favorite but other than that the teachers seem to understand a childs needs. The school needs a little work on the special education program , though. The schools Q.U.E.S.T program is wonderful and the gifted teachers are great. The sports are great .Finally, I'd like to say that the orchestra , chorus, and band options are a great way for children to start their Iives .
