    I have 2 children that go here and I have always had wonderful feedback from my children about their teachers and other staff. They truly care about the students in and out of school even those who aren't their daily teachers. And the teachers work hard to help the students to strive in school as a student friend role model to other kids and as our children. I couldn't ask for better teachers for my kids.
