  • The school is wonderful. The teachers are talented straight down to the substitutes. There is plenty of enrichment at this school. They offer a foreign language program in which the teacher is absolutely talented and very well educated. The CIGMA program is wonderful and allows students to flourish. Highly recommended school!
