    This is an outstanding school. Our child excels here. The school has a warm caring environment that fosters self confidence. The faculty cares tremendously for the students and it shows. From an academic standpoint the teachers do an excellent job. The parental involvement in the school is high. A large part of this is because the community is a very involved and engaged community. In addition the school does an outstanding job of communicating what events are taking place and how you child and you can be involved in so many activities that enhance the school and community experience for all involved.

    We moved here last August and I was so impressed with how helpful the school secretary was in helping me enroll my three children. She was kind enough to take us on a tour of the school so that they knew were they would be going and not feel lost. Throughout the school year I got to know just how caring an willing the teachers are to make sure your child is getting the most out of his/her school year. And the principal.. well what can I say? He is funny and caring but firm and makes sure that the children are learning to take accountability for their own actions good or bad. I am looking forward to another GREAT year )

    The teacher's are outstanding the families are wonderful and the experience is exceptional. My child just completed his first year here after relocating from the south. I was worried how he would adjust to a new school and new children. It has been the best possible transition I could have hoped for.
