    Great school. I went here when we lived in Missouri and it was the best school I went to in a long string of schools I attended since my mom and I moved a lot. The teacher I had was nice we had a lot of great school projects and they encourage active participation in learning.

    The school was all about the students and their parents. They go above and beyond to keep parents in the loop and to keep kids enthralled in learning. It has a very nice community feel and the kids seem to really like it as well. I love their slogan about being respectful learners.
