Love our school for our academics, all of our amazing teachers and very caring principal. The parent's level of involvement is tremendous. The school is in great shape and always maintained clean. Our beautiful long grass fields give our children the space to run and play freely. One of the best features of our school is having K-3 grades where our 3rd graders can stay naive and innocent. Our school is safe, loving, and academically challenging and I recommend it.
