  • My daughter assisted 1 - 5th grade. 1/2 the time she was in the bilingual program and the other part she did all English. Despite the myths that many might have the bilingual program is great and my daughter immediately entered the gifted and telented program. The principal is a excellent person who is always looking for creative ways to motivate the students. I love the teaching curriculum and the fact that teachers are always motivating students. I daughter liked school so much that she always looked foward to staying after school and helping out.
