    A terrific school great students and staff. However many of the parents are entitled demanding and overly involved.

  • (7 years ago)

    All the teachers and staff at the school seem so happy to be there. Parents are highly involved and support the school. Teachers have been responsive and communicative. Love the school!

    A wonderful school where teachers staff and students all seem to be positive and friendly. My kindergartner who needs some extra support is getting huge amounts of attention feels loved and valued. I couldn't be happier.
