    My daughter had Mrs. Rice last year and I was so amazed at how much she learned. Mrs. Rice is the best teacher if you ask me.. This year my oldest is now in 1st grade and is doing pretty well in Ms. Vo's class. I watch her struggle with some of the homework and wish Mrs. Rice could've changed grades with her.

    My children went to this school for 5 years. I was very disappointed in this school. My son has a learning disability and they did nothing to assist him. He went from having failing grades when we moved to being on the AB honor roll at his new school. The principal and vice principal seem to only care about the 'Boys Town' resigme instead of building the children up.
