  • We have 2 children who were students at this school. Our children loved the school and the teachers. We were always impressed when everyone knew our childrens names. They were always encouraged to excel and they thrived while in this school.
    No organization is perfect and there were a few hiccups along the way. However, situations were always handled in a way where everyone was pleased with the outcome. The children were always treated fairly. We would like to see some of the activities return to the school that were a part of the school in years past such as football, cheering, etc. The extracurricular activities are also important.
