School Reviews

5   3/24/2021
This is a wonderful school where teachers truly care about students. My children were made to feel welcomed and included from day 1, even starting in the middle of a challenging year for all schools. They have beautiful outdoor learning spaces that they utilize to the greatest extent. The teachers are kind and creative and highly qualified. I have one child who participates in the gifted program and loves it and one child who receives special education services and they are incredibly inclusive and wonderful with her. All my children made friends right away and love their teachers and the specials that are offered. The parent community is caring and involved, I cannot say enough good things about this school!
