Wonderfully inclusive school. Children on welfare with learning problems are a highlight of inclusiveness. Nothing could be better.

A very nice private school. Teachers are caring and strong and the administration knows the children. New Administrative group has added onto an already strong program and kids are treated well. A good place for students to learn
