    This school has been very satifactory for me and my son. He now is in the third grade. He told me that he is learning fractions right now. He has improved his skills in math science and reading. I am very proud of this school.

    This school is a jewel in densely populated urban neighborhood. Wonderful talented and extremely dedicated group of teachers who take on many extra activities to support their students learning. Little turn over in staff. Exceptional garden space for learning. Family support by a core group of parents.
