    This little gem ofa school is underrated! I love the family atmosphere of the school where the staff knows each child on a first name basis and can meet their needs in such a way that they can be successful. I have three students who attend and they LOVE school. Anyone looking for a quality challenging rigorous small school setting should visit and check it out. Seeing is believing!
