    Both my children go to school here. Not only have the teachers helped with learning difficulties that they have faced with multiple learning techniques but my kids actually look forward to going to school and learning every day. The school has many activities through out the year and the sports are fun without being too competitive like you would get through a larger school. Now if the parents would be as involved with their childrens education as the teachers this school would be 5 stars.

    I would never recommend sending a child to this school. Not only is the teachers unhelpful but if your child gets hurt you as the parent are not informed.
