    I haven't had any negative problems with this school so far it has been a very warm and caring group of teachers. As with any place there is always room to improve and grow. We have just moved here 2 years ago and love this school!

    Quite possibly the worst school ever. The teachers are gossiping biddies and parents are opting to homeschool.
