    Great School Great Atmosphere - Overall poistive learning environment. Beautiful new building as well. I tend to be very engaged with my childs learning and have found each and every teacher as well as the Leadership at the school to be very approachable and willing to partner to ensure my child is successful. Team 6 has been absolutely outstanding this year!
