    Wonderful school. French immersion program is the greatest. My 3rd grade daughter reads French like a 1st or 2nd grade French girl. Her English reading is at grade level and improving every day since they started English instruction this year. Top notch highly qualified and caring teachers. Recess every day! Lots of collaborative work. Plenty of parent involvement. Good size classrooms. Milton Food Services provides healthy lunches much better than I have seen in other systems.
