Community Rating & Reviews

    I really like this school. My daughter has been going here for 2 years now and she really enjoys it a lot as well. They have a lot of activities for the children and their families. The only complaint that I would have is they could use more teachers and less children in a class room.

    This is a culturally diverse school. Which is a plus! They are working hard at moving forward. I feel they are on the right track. Although presently in transition to their newly renovated school I see promise.

    The principle and teachers do all they can to keep a safe school where discipline is used but parents have a different mindset. I admire all teachers in this school trying to make the community more open-minded.
