    The first grade teachers at this school are amazing. Their dedication to their students is unparalleled! Lessons are engaging and nothing short of brilliant! I appreciate the daily feedback and thank them for keeping me afloat as to what goes on in their classrooms each and every day. Thank you!

    This is a great school. I do think they give out to much homework for the children sometimes I feel that if I am the teacher. I do wish they had a Christmas program or any holiday program at that. I would like for my child to experience school as I did. The staff here is great and the school is very clean. I can honestly say I feel safe knowing that my child is in great care.
