We are so impressed by the enthusiasm of the teachers here. The arts program is wonderful. The art teacher is phenomenal and helps everyone recognize their artist potential. The spring musicals are fantastic with all the students participating enthusiastically. Test scores keep rising every year showing that incorporating the arts into the classroom is working!
