    This school is absolutely amazing. All the staff are wonderful and talk to you on an open and understanding level. You can tell they love these kids and this school! It is exceptionally clean bright and fun. Teachers even after an exhausting day still stop and chat. The after school program has literally sped up my child's learning AND behavioral progress. It's just time well spent doing various activities in a safe environment. This school is a blessing and I'm grateful to have my child attend.

    We love this school! It's a small school and most or maybe all class rooms has less than 20 children. The faculty takes such pride in the school. It's also the cleanest school I have ever been in. On top of all that it's now recognized as a School Of Excellence.
