    For what I can tell so far the principal is very friendly and possitive I sent an email and she answered right away. I am exited to have my son there!

    This is a great school. Is completely new and has smart boards in every 1-5 classrooms. All the teachers are interactive and do all kinds of art projects and there's a lot of family events. The Parent Club is strong and very supportive of the school and it's events
