    A great school has an honest principal like the one at this school. being respect and teamwork starts with all of us doing our part to make our neighborhood school better. This is done by the example set by the leadership demonstrated in this school. First the principal listens to the paremts concerns. Making a difference in your child's life is done by all joingin together to support the principal. BEST INTEREST IN YOUR CHILD IS BY A MUTUAL DESIRE TO LOVE THE LITTLE ONES. THE PRINCIPAL is dedicated and professionally educated to serve the needs of every single child in this school. hooray

    This school is horrible! The Principal and the teachers do not give you a warm welcome reception the building is quite dirty and the children are locked outside of their classrooms until the bell rings. I took my daughter out of this school after she completed Pre-K and it was the best decision I have ever made reguarding her education
