    Hey everyone I'm here once more to take back a comment that I made out of anger on February 14 2012 I said this school is not so good in my eye but truthful that's not true this school is the best I have ever see and I'm sorry for misguiding everyone that read it. this school is the best the Teacher are good and everyone is just so kind. I did wright a bad review because of one bad experience but what I should have done was give it a change before I open my month.

    Hi I am a parent and I have to say this school is awesome. I love the way that the class sizes are small and the children get lots of one on one time.. My daughter is striving in this school and making great progress. I applaud the staff for a job well done.
