School Reviews

5   8/5/2021
I HAVE 3 kids. Two of my sons went to this school & now my only daughter is going to this school. I am with this school since 2010 & I know them very well. I love the teachers & their teaching method, their welcoming attitude towards all parents very much. I wish I could assist them as a Substitute Teacher. The school recently closed the nomination process. Plz if you reopen the nomination process then let me know then my dream will come true working with you.
