    My son attended here for kindergarten. As a teacher myself I'm particular about my son's education. I was sadly disappointed by his teacher as well as the principal and chose to send him to private school this year. When I brought concerns to the attention of the teacher she blew me off. I feel that as an involved parent I did far more than my share and was sad that I felt the best option was private school.

    My son is currently in 5th grade at this school. He has been attending this school since kindergarten. He absolutely loves it and I can't wait for my 3 year old to start in the future.
