    I have been extremely impressed with this school! The counselor is very involved and gets to know all the students. She does an amazing job educating the kids about various topics. The school uses a character education program that is obviously working because it shines through the students. The principal is also very involved. God made her to do what she is doing. She knows all the students and has done an amazing job. The kids know her and love her. As a parent I love how she quickly responds to any questions or concerns I have. She has gone above and beyond her job as a principal. The teachers are amazing too as they find fun and engaging ways to educate the students. Teachers treat each child as individuals and somehow find the time to reach each one in their busy days! I am beyond impressed.
