    This a wonderful school! The teachers strive to have your kid reading before leaving kindergarten. They push for academic success and always find ways to assist the parents in all areas! The principal Dr. Flamer is the best as well as the admin asst. Ms. Lyles. They are pleasant to work with and enjoy doing their jobs.
