  • Reviewed by Parent or Guardian on February 16, 2011
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I rate this school as a positive learning environment for my child. She is in the second grade there and I love her teacher. When I ask her how her day was, she tells me how excited she was about learning, their "centers", and the principal coming to talk to the class.

    I know my child is in excellent hands and I have been told many times from her teacher that what goals are set, how to reach them, and that extra help is always there.
