    I am a teacher at this school and I think it is a terrific school full of hardworking staff members and the students that are here. The principal is hardworking and easy to approach. This school is now an elementary school and not a primary center. There are many extra activities at this school. I see that the students staff and parents are happy here. There is an involved parent center as well. This school is like a breath of fresh air.

    This school has very few extra-curricular activities. And has very poor parent-teacher communication. there have been several times when the office staff do not communicate changes in schedules in a timely manner. The principal although high spirited needs to be more involved.
