This is a newly built dream school that is a safe, community based effort to prepare our well rounded students to be leaders. It has every ammenitiy including wireless access but more importantly, it has heart. The teachers and parents love the children and the school. It shines as a beacon where everyone is wild about teaching and learning. Mr. Sendak is the headmaster.
