My daughter started there in 2005. Since then all my children attend there and I have no plans on transfering them. I love the teachers.

As a relatively new teacher, I receive a lot of support from not only the other teachers but from the principal as well. This is a great school with a dedicated staff that is committed to helping students learn.
