I changed to this school last year. At first I thought that I wasn't going to like this school, but later on I really liked it. Especially for the celebrations and programs they have. Well if you are looking for a caring school choose this one. They are like a second home. The teachers teach excellent lessons for each subject including religion.

This school is a gold mine in the little village neighborhood, its quality of education is excellent, the teachers are caring and the principal is the hardest working, most caring, most humble, principal I have ever seen, I can't compare him to any other. The music and art program is excellent, the children Christmas play is like no other!
