I just surprised my 5th grader with a visit during her lunchtime. This is an amazing school. The teachers are hands on.. they pay attention to all students... The principal works hard to make it interesting and attractive for the students. She had placed a red carpet down the hall with stars .... notes with stars and good show.... My 3rd and 5th graders improve each year. Teachers Look forward to a K student next year. Look out for Stella
