    This is another great school that I still have the pleasure of being associated with. It also has an 'old school' teaching way. Teachers still seem to care about the children. New innovative programs are being thought of to help our children have brighter futures and it's all right in our back yard. This is a school where you can call them at 4 00 and still have staff that is not janitorial staff talk to you. The social worker is very kind as well the principle. My son has had no complaints of Mrs. Murphy his kindegarten teacher. However the only lack I see here is the communication one on one with the parents. Improve that and this shcool has nothing to look at but stars! This school is also one of the rare schools that offers all day kindegarten which is a blessing for parents who want their child to learn.
