    I was a former student at this school. i started the school at the age of four and was so sad to leave after the fifth grade. But anyone planning on going to the school should really consider it because the teachers and staff are really excellent they really care about the students well fare i would recommend this school to anyone looking for an elementary school where their child will receive an excellent education and learn life skills in order to achieve success in the real world.

    I have two children i placed at this school within the past year. They came from private school. I am so pleased with the education they are getting now and the wonderful teachers they have had. They go above and beyond and they truly care. My kids want to go to school each day. That says a lot.
