    My daughter just started attending this school and I have become impressed with the personal attention given to the students. Mrs. Green runs an amazing program and Cathy Link as well with the teaching and support of the arts. The most important aspect of the school is that they intergrade art library gym music' specials' with the curriculum. So important!
