The academic programs offered by the school are wonderful and competitive. They have an array of activities for children to be involved with. They have a vast award system and the facilities are adequate but, we need a "new" school in our district ASAP. The parents are very involved with their children's education here and we demand to be informed of changes being made where our children are concerned. If need be we will go to higher government to be heard. I am a proud parent and will not have the lives of my children compromised for other schools to have new and upgraded facilities when we should receive the new school because money has been donated for that sole purpose. We want our voices to be heard and we intend to have a compromise made to our children's benefit.
