    I have been at Battlefield for two years now and love it! The teacher's are wondeful and I have a blast in each one of my classes except for PE! I hate PE but I love everything else.

    Two of my children went to this school twelve years apart. The school offers the same high quality education now as it did back in the early nineties. There are programs to suit every child's needs together with true encouragement to improve and participate. The school offers quality teaching and leadership and teaches the children to strive to achieve their personal best. Children really enjoy attending this school.
