    As a parent I feel that my 3 children were very lucky to study in such a loving encouraging and caring atmosphere. Kids are always encouraged and are never talked down to. The sense of the school community is very strong! I was especially touched when my child with medical needs was accommodated beyond my expectations. I have to mention the wonderful nurse who works there. She would make a hundred steps instead of one to make sure the children are OK and safe! Overall I consider ourselves lucky to have such a wonderful school in our district!

    We moved from NY to NJ mainly because of schools there. Our child went to first grade. So far we are in love with his teacher she's absolutely great in all respects. WE are being constantly updated on what's going on in class on our child's progress. I could never imagine somuch attention and love from a public school teacher.
