    This is a great school. My son goes to kindergarten here. He loves to go to school he has learned to read and write during this year he loves his teachers and friends. Staff is always very welcoming and positive when we drop him of in the morning. Overall we have a very positive experience with this school and we would recommend it. This school is much better than the rating it gets here at great schools.org.
