    Great leadership and staff. The school is a family. Not only do they work well together they have great parent/child communication. This school has the child's best needs and interest as heart. They are devoted to their jobs and helping each child succeed.

    This is a great school. It's a new (built in 2007) school which is modern and clean. The teachers are absolutely wonderful. They are very organized and communication is great. The PTA is very involved and has a lot of fun activities for the kids to attend. Hands down one of the bests.

    The staff at this school is more dedicated than any other school my daughter has attended. She requires special attention and they have been able to provide her with just that without interferring with her regular school day routine or having to single her out. I am reloacting to FL and am so sad to take her out of this school. I hope that I can find her a school that is anywhere near the level that this school has been
