    The school is well rounded the teachers are wonderful and the activities weather it is sports or extra curricular are top notch. Parents are always welcome and volunteers appreciated. I love that this is the first school my children are a part of.

    My children now 15 & 16 went to this school and I was very pleased with the attention & interaction the whole staff had with the children's educational needs. I am now in a new family situation with a 5 & 3 year old step-children. Now 10yrs. later the same levels apply to these children as did my older kids. My 15 & 16 year olds live in another state now with their mother but have carried the skills & disipline they learned here with them through to high-school where they are in the top percent of their classes. I am proud to say they were part of this school system.
