  • This school and its very caring and proffessional staff very well lead by an excellent Principal and SLT as well as PTA have helped my two children exceed anything I have ever dared hope for them. There are no words elequent enough to do them justice. My kids have mild autism they are now multi facited individuals thanks to this school bringing out their talents and dreams. I will always hold this school in my heart and prayers.
