    My daughter is a new student here. I absolutely love the staff and how friendly they are. At her old school the administration would talk to parents as if they were children and act as if they were doing you a favor if you needed something. My daughter loves her new school and her teachers. Her classmates are kind and she always comes home with stories about how nice everyone treats each other. The amount of coursework she is sent home with is reasonable. The teachers are very accommodating and set aside enough time during parent teacher conferences to make sure you leave there feeling assured your child is getting a great education. Her teacher has taught grades higher than the one my daughter is currently attending and tailors each child's learning pathway to suit their needs. If a child is accelerated at math she will use lesson plans for higher grades to challenge them. It is nice to see a school where the teachers welcome you with a smile and truly care about making the transition to a new school effortless. Knowing that her teacher is as invested as I am in her education is paramount to me.
