    My son is in 3rd grade and he just loves school. My experience with this school as with school #2 is that the teachers are very attentive and interact with parents concerns immediately. I was going to move 3 years ago but am afraid my son will not get the education & love for school as he does here.

    School #3 is a small school of only the 3rd and 4th grades. The teachers are exceptionally caring and hard working. We have had wonderful experiences in this school. The resources and programs available to the students are excellent. I highly recommend this school to new incoming parents

    Our son receives care through the Special Education Program. I have found School number 3 to be cooperative open and able to communicate their observations as well as critism to us in an open and honest format. My son's teacher is wonderful. She works very closely with him and he has a huge amount of respect for her.
