    My school is a super school in that all staff and teachers work together as a team. Our school motto is "We are Leading the Rest" Students work hard every day in all kind of activities whether it is in the classroom outside recycling in the computer lab or science center. Parents are welcomed to come and work as volunteers and use the parent resource room. Teacher come up with innovative and nurturing activities to have our students think things through to gain deeper knowledge base. We are always looking for ways to use technology in all classrooms and how to involve the community in our programs. Come be a part of our environment and lead the rest with us.

    i really love when my child was going to this school the teachers work so hard at teaching the child to grasp the material that they are being taught. I really wish that all my children could go to this school. _Because you can just feel the love and support there and you also can tell the difference. when you go over the lessons with your child at home
