    Great school great caring teachers.My shy daughter was welcomed to school by her kindergarten teacher whom she met over the summer so she was comfortable and adjusted. The entire year was fantastic and my daughter is looking forward to 1st grade. She has already met her teacher at a lunch for her new class

    This school is very nice with many nice programs for children. It provides an excellent choice of musical instruments such as violin saxophone and other instruments. It also provides a nice vocal program called chorus. There are others things such as an enrichment program and other programs to help improve children's reading speech and writing. The teachers are very nice and keep a nice control over the children. This school has excellent safety and discipline. The parents are very involved in the school and the school holds many extra curricular programs such as family bowling night. The principal has good leadership and decision making such as once the principal decided that a project a student was making and agreed to let the whole school do it. This was an excellent project because the students got to donate things to the American soldiers. Overall this school is a excellent school.
