Very impressed with the school and staff. Reviewer above is not really qualified to rate the school and should be removed. So far, all I see is positive learning environments and Teachers that care, I`ll give a more thorough assessment when time permits and as my child goes through the system.

I visited this school and saw a major cause of bullying. The children on recess were fighting and the children around them were laughing. The teacher that looked over them was paying attention to her cell phone. I am shocked and give a bad rating for this school.
