I've been to several schools and so far this is the best school in Huntsville! The teachers are great but the principal is one of a kind!! She is really great with everyone and makes you feel special. Sadly we are leaving but I wish I could take her to my kids next school bc I'm going to miss her spirit, her love, and energy that she gives for that school!!!!
