    I think in the everyday this school is doing a great job where its most important with the kids. My son went to this school for less than six months. We had just come to the US. Although the language was not a problem(my son speaks english) he still face different challenges and the teachers and staff was so very helpful in him overcoming them. He loved it there and learn a great deal.

    I like the school I think they are doing a good job for the most part. I dont like the fact that my child can not be given spanish class even by my request and no one can explain why! I spent to months calling requesting the change and they just brushed me off and disregarded me completely.
