  • This school is the best for my 3 kids they all passed every grade and I never thought that would be so easy for my kids. They came home wanting to tell me what they learned from school and was so glad to do they homework. They keep on telling me how great there teachers are and can't wait for the next school year. Also they really have been Inproving so much. I really have been touched with what the teachers had said about my kids. It really hurts me when my kids had to move up the middle school. But now there really great and smart but not a nerd.
