    My Daughter is in K and am surprise at the different thing that she learns e.g. matter. She is so excited about learning French. At five my daughter can spell the word 'favorite'. The principal is very encoraging and her teacher is very resposive to my notes. Excellent school.

    I have a child in Pre-K and I am overwhelmingly pleased with the education she is receiving. However the Principal and Vice Principals have a long way to go before meeting that standard. They are disorganized.

    This is the worst school I have ever come in contact with. The principal is uncaring however the teachers are great for the most part. There is an unbelievable discipline problem that needs to be addresses asap!

    I have two daughters that attend this school. It needs improvement in parent/teacher relationship. Although the school is located in a nice neighborhood. I feel safe leaving my daughters there.
