    I love this school. I have had 2 children in this school. One is still in the school. I could not have ask for better teachers to teach my girls.

    This school is fantastic. The teachers are there for the students and for each other. You will not be able to find a more supportive administration or colleagues who care more about each other. It's an excellent place to work!

    This school has been wonderful to my kids the teachers do go out of their way to help and teach children. Yes there are rules and we as parents have to help our children abide by them. My son had some problems with reading and the principal saw to it that he got the help he needed. Thanks Mr. K! The new school is beautiful and is an excellent facility They are in 5th grade so I know they'll be disappointed to leave next year. They also have many afterschool programs for working parents I did'nt have to use them because I'm a stay at home mom. Keep up the great work!

    This school ROCKS! My children absolutely race each other through the house to get ready for school..it's unbelieveable! We moved here from the mid west and by far this school believes in the children. Our kids went from low esteem to giants all because the teachers are there for the kids. The Related Arts Departments are top notch (Gillespie Silvers Coach A Chesser. Harrisen). The Administrators (Mr. K and Dr. Metcalf) of the School are the best. The teachers are the finest and they shine with a brilliant touch. -A Pleased Parent
