    By far the newest and cleanest school in town. The principal Mr. Diehl greets each student and parents every am and pm overseeing the traffic by the loop securing safety. Teachers are very warm and great and so with school activities specially the Multi-cultural day and Halloween Parade. Proud of this school.

    Don't like this school at all! Teachers need to be trained on how to deal with students in the class.

    My daughter is attended K to 2nd grades.Next year she will attend 3rd grade. Teachers and Pricipal are excellent. Qualiy of eduction is very good. This school has Spanish classes starting from 1st grade. PAL program keeps parents involved in the school. School performed better in rating than other schools with higher funding. I attribute this success to teacher's hardwork and focus on each students individual learning needs. School has music and computer classes with free summer camps and summer reading programs.

    State of the art facilities with caring teachers. Their Enrichment Program (Pre-K) should be extended.
