    This is by far my favorite school in the East Ramapo District. Dr. Nancy Kavanaugh Principal cares more about her students than any other Principal I have ever met. She is never to busy to answer a question or listen to a concern. The teachers are all fabulous. Both of my children went to this school they were treated with respect taught by excellent teachers the school itself is clean and very well taken care of. The only draw back is that they have old equipment and the teachers are not given training on the new equipment like Smart Boards. The teachers have to spend their own money and go to classes on their own time!!
