  • The school has a good staff. I really think the school has a strong learning environment. There's no gym class. Children need phys. ed. The principal, Ms. Elizabeth Nevels was dedicated to her students and she worked hard everyday. She passed away on January 11, 2010. She was loved and will be missed.
