    I can not tell you how wonderful this school is. The staff is amazing and care very much for all the kids. We have experienced so much love from this school. My son had a serious surgery last year and each child made him a card it was so uplifting for him. The principal is one of the most caring woman I have ever met. It is obvious the dedication and hard work she puts into the school. We are sadly moving from the area but I wanted to pass on praise if your thinking about this school.

    Great school!!! My daughter went to Kindergarten here in 2011-12. The principal and teachers are actively involved in school programs and student's progress. Each school day is very well planned and organized the school curriculum challenging without being burdensome for the students...in fact they enjoy it!! There is no dearth of extracurricular activities as well. There is music gym computers art and library. Children are taught to be caring respectful and responsible. The school has strict policy on bullying and children are made aware of it from Kindergarten. The school inculcates positive thinking and encourages children to do the best they can each day. "Positive Reinforcement" is the mantra The reading program (about 20 minutes a day for 20 days each month) was very helpful in building reading skills. My daughter was able to read level 2-3 books by the end of school year The school also has a very active PTA. The PTA organized and conducted many programs holiday parties field trips...The office staff are friendly and helpful too. Overall a very nice school environment to begin formal education
