    Great School! Stong teachers and great prinicpal. The language immersion programs were what brought us to this school but the welcoming environment is great. Love the diversity though language issues do limit parent involvement.

    The community is welcomed in to help with the school; the principal engages everyone - children; parents; volunteers; it's multi-ethnic.

    The ethnic diversity is a plus. There is a small core group of parents that is very involved but there could be more involvement. There are good extracurricular activities available especially after school sports and chess club. There is some music and art offered in the curriculum. There are a number of quality dedicated teachers. They strive to meet the variety of needs of such a diverse student body. The principal is competent and experienced. There is a new addition to the school building that has greatly increased the space.
