    Our entire family loves this school. We have three attending currently with one more child to be attending in the future. The principal teachers and staff are respectful kind and loving. The teachers work hard to make sure every child is learning and growing. They encourage independent thinkers and self reliance with a "you can do it" atmosphere. The teachers and principle give positive reinforcement for any child that may have a bit of Curious George in them....as we do in our family. Homework assignments are time appropriate for grade level and age. If your child goes to school here they will feel that they can be successful in anything they do in life. That ~ as parents grandparents and great-grandparents ~ is all we could hope for in a school environment.

    My child is in first grade at this school and I feel that it is a wonderful school. I love the teachers. All of them reach out to make every adult and child feel welcome and as if they are a part of the 'school family'.The only fault I find about the school is that my child must leave after the 5th grade. It would be wonderful if it were a K-8 school.
