    Everyone watches out for everyone else here. The faculty is always promoting ways for our children to become involved and help others in our community and across the world. They also teach our kids to be proactive in the conservation of our planet so we can help ourselves by helping our environment.

    We started out in the Olentangy district before we made the move 4 years ago when my oldest child was going into 4th grade and middle child in 2nd. The staff and students made the potentially tough change a seemless one for my kids. The smaller district feels much warmer and more personal than big Olentangy. We are very happy here.

    It's an amazing school due to the teachers and principal....I am so lucky to have my second grader in Mrs. Larbus' class!
