    My son enjoys attending every day. He likes the lunches and the staff is very optomistic. Sytaff sends out email. The jazz band group is a big plus.

    I am new here at this school and so far everyone's been welcoming sweet and helpful. The envirement is spectacular! I really enjoy the classes there too!

    My daughter has attended this fine institute of learning for two years and she is thrilled with the school. Our only concern is that her grades haven't been quite as strong as in previous districts.
