    There isn't a school anywhere around that could possibly top this one! My daughter had the same 4th grade teacher that I had when I went here! I was shown such comfort knowing my child with asthma would be well taken care of at school! Home Away From Home!

    The best. Four generations of my family attended this school. Small classes great teachers and outstanding parental involvement. I couldn't think of any place better except Leave It To Beaver.
