  • I go to this school and it's not the best one around,but it provides quality education and the teachers really care. The only reason I would NOT recommend this school, ( from a child's point of view) is the students. The children in my class and other classes are just horrible! Only a few students have real interest in the learning, and arent more concerned about friends and he/she said. If your child doesnt have a problem with bullies and or bullying problem, then this school is a good option.

  • This school is awesome and I highly recommend it for parents. It provides a quality education and your children receive love and care. However, I wouldn't recommend it to people who are hoping to join an athletic club. It lacks in that area. Overall I love the school itself and the teachers and staff
