This school is excellent in every aspect I can think of. Great academics, challenging children of all ability levels. Plenty of programs all taking place in a great building with beautiful athletic facilities. Most importantly, the teachers and management of the school are extremely caring and involved. I wish I went to an elementary school like this.
