  • I love this school and so does my daughter. Principal Smith is very active and concerned about her students. The teachers are warm, approachable and expect the best from students. This is my daughter's first year at a public school and I am impressed. I wish we had discovered this jewel of a school sooner. I highly recommend Thirkell.
