I was utterly surprised when I walked into this school. it was peaceful it was quiet the children were actively learning that teachers were actively teaching I was shot. I had visited about for other elementary schools prior to coming no one expected me to be there so I surprised them as well the press pool in the secretary or both a delay My knees join the kindergarten class she had a very bad experience from teachers and cook elementary school during her 1st year are kinda I shall I tell her 1stMonth. I give this school a rating of ten because it is now February and they have not disappointed me yet. That is everyone on staff is a delight.
