    This is a good elementary school with dedicated teachers. The school continues to be a source of great inspiration to students. No chance for bullying or that kind of nonsense! Here children have good academic foundation they need to continue to excel in their Middle High Junior High and Senior High School. I believe God has used this school to help my son whom God is helping to be an all round good student and also on the Honor's List at his Middle high School. God willing he will continue his 'A's in the Senior High and go to College pretty soon.
