    Great school barely moved from Illinois to Tennessee the school has been good for my kids very pleasing. The teachers and principal are wonderful they have the best staff . When we were in Illinois the staff was poorly if people had problems they would just tell them and the teachers would paddle them even though they're in Illinois I have 2 children they're twins but the other one was born a little bit later . He's going to attend the school earlier August. I'm expecting he likes the school just as much as his sister does. Looking forward to it thanks for having a great school.

    I was very pleased when my kids attended this school.The principal was great and the teachers were wonderful. One of my boys was having trouble academicaly and the teachers and guidance counselor kept me informed and offered different suggestions on how to help my child. I would recommend this school to any parent. I just hate that I moved from the school district. Now my kids attend a school that I am not very pleased with.
