    I attended this school as a child and my mother was impressed with the level of involvement on the part of the teachers. Now both of my children have gone there and can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that my kids did extremely well there in class and socially. The teachers really seem to care about the students and there is great communication between parents and teachers.
