School Reviews

5  6/30/2010
This is a very good school with hardly any discipline problems. Even being new and in the last year of elem. school, my child was well accepted and welcomed. This school seems to have lots of volunteers so if you think you are not helping out very much make sure you are a substitute volunteer. You will slowly get to know more people. Make sure your home comes with a pool bond if you want to use the tennis courts or the pool. Otherwise, you will have to wait about 4 years.
