    This is a wonderful school. It was rebuilt in 2009 and has impressive facilities. The principal and teachers are wonderful and really care about the students. There is a no bully policy and they have no problem in that area. Each classroom has a promethean board which allows for more interactive learning. This school is good at recognizing each child's weakness/strengths and tailoring their work accordingly. I highly recommend this school.
