    I just can say I like it I had to change my daughter to another school because we moved to a diferent area but because the school be are moving back. My daughter learned a lot here and the reading program is great!

    This is a wonderful school. It was recognized last year as the most improved Elementary School in the UNITED STATES (over a three year period) -- largely due to the accelerated math and reading programs that allow student to progress at individual rates. The facilities are OUTstanding and the teachers are all with the program about promoting the individual best among students AND faculty/staff.
