    I have had dealings with this school and their audio department years ago and was always so happy to take my daughter there and be met by professionals and sweet staff. Now two of my grandchildren are there and I couldn't be happier. I would recommend this school to anyone looking. The staff is simply there for the families and of course the students. The teachers I have met couldn't be better and more caring. Keep it up you are doing a fantastic job with the children!

    I have two children at this school. I have been very pleased with the staff. The teachers are wonderful my children are receiving an excellent education. The principal Mr. Queen shows that he cares about the children the PTA has multiple activities for the entire family throughout the year. The art teacher Ms. Noell sincerely loves to create works of art with the kids. I have a child in 2nd grade and one who started there this year in kindergarten. The teachers promote parent involvement. I highly recommend this school.
