    This school is the best. The parent participation is unbelievable. My daughter loves to return there every year. The material she's learning in 2nd grade is material I didn't learn until years later. The kids really seem great and the teachers are energetic and enthusiastic.

    The teachers are great and the extra curricular programs are second to none. The kids are given great opportunities to supplement standard academics with music programs plays lunch time sports and after school science. Exceptional parental involvement creates additional opportunities for the students. I can't think of a better learning environment.
