  • I have been a student of this school from first to sixth grade. This is the place where I had the greatest teachers. A few of them are still around. The teachers made it so comfortable for me to be there. I made some good friends and I remember the principals too! My early childhood experiences were so memorable due to coming to this school. This school will always hold a special place in my heart.
