  • I just wanted to give this a huge thumbs up!!!! I am a happy & a proud parent to have my children attend this school. They really do work on all area's of life not just the text books stuff. They have help me teach my children the understanding of always having a positive attitude in all situation of life, social skills, good sense of community, to always give back, & to work hard towards excellence. I can't thank them all enough. I hope that we are able to keep these schools up & running & I will do all I can to help out.
