This school is an excellent place for teachers and students. I have worked in different schools and I can truly say that the Principal as well as the other administrators go beyond to accommodate everyone in this building. Parents are always welcomed and have different activities in which they can partake. The pre-k classrooms are amazing, the children in these two classroom show independence, eagerness, and most important they feel secure in this nurturing environment. They also have a program for children with autism which focuses in individualized curriculum for each child in each of the five classrooms.
