    A lot of favoritism among the children. Especially the Cornelius girls. Their mom is a teacher there and their dad is assistant superintendent. They win every contest competition and always student of the month. Go figure....

    great school! Teacher love students and provide a great foundation for the students to build on.

  • (5 years ago)

    It is a small school but the staff works very hard to give each child the best education.
