  • An Amazing School all around! The Teaching Staff, The Principal, all of the Assistants, and Volunteers are really what makes this school what it is! On top of all of the wonderful people this school has so many teaching tools available for the students. Field trips happen often, and there are so many activities to help your children explore their creative side. This school encourages children to be able to have freedom of expression in their work, and play. Overall I don't think that I would be able to find another school that would measure up to this one in this area!! :D
