  • I love this school. Even though it is an older building the teachers are great. They are very understanding and will work with your child to make sure they are comfortable and learning at the levels they need to be at. First school my son has been to in Columbia county that has taken the time to understand him better and help him catch up with the other children since he had speech and learning issues, which in turn lead to difficulties with making friends with his peers and comunicating with others. I am grateful that his second grade teacher Ms. R and his Principal has been so patient with him and has been a great part in his learning success!
