    My school is awesome! It all starts with the leadership the principal is a no no nonsese kind of person with a loving attitude towards her students. The teachers come together to teach to the highest level and they try to pair the students learning style to the teacher it corresponds with by allowing parents to request their children's teacher. Overall the school does a great job of having a fun challenging learning enviroment.

    This is a great school in itself but my God the staff there is so unfriendly. My daughter attends this school and my younger son attends Eastwood Heights and that is a way friendlier atmosphere the school is alsoequally recognised! Glen cove is not understanding of single parent families like myself.
