    I don't know how the school is now but when I went there in the late 80's early 90's it was one the best experiences a kid could have. I'm sure most of my teachers have retired but I do miss them especially Mrs. Osborne wonderful woman who cared deeply about each and every student. If the teachers there today are anything like she was back then the kids are in great hands

    What agreat school! The staff makes you feel so welcome they are like family. The teachers will go above and beyond to help a child in need wether it be school work tutoring or food and toys at Christmas for a needy family. I am proud.

    This is the worst school I've ever seen. The principle has a horrible attitude. Your concerns go unattended by the teachers and staff. They spend more time fighting with parents than they do teaching our children!
