I was impressed with everything about the school from administrators, teacher, even the lunchroom ladies helping when we forgot lunch money.Dr Jones made my 3 children feel welcome to a new school as well as their teachers. If i had a problem t, they found solutions. We came from a small private school and this was a whole new world to us and we were all worried but they had a great year and had good grade too ...win win situation,,we''re looking forward to another great year
