  • I think this school is great. I like how they give awards to let the kids know that reading and doing there homework is also important. they make all the kids feel important.I like how they make kids have responsibility in and outside of class room. I think they truly care about there kids and there success and thats what is important.

  • I love this school. My kids do as well. I haven't had any problems with the teachers nor have my children. I believe the performance of a child reflects on the parents more than the teachers.

  • This is a great school if you have enough common sense to help your kids, like you should no matter what school they go to. My children have been to 5 different schools in the last 3 years and this is their favorite school.

  • I am very disturbed by this school's performance. My kids have been attending this school since August 2007, and I have been disappointed with it daily. I DO NOT recommend this school to anyone!
