I have sent 2 children to this school and was a transplant from another state. We knew no one. This school embraced us and we were made to feel like family. I have one more that is currently attending and it is even better today. This school like any school will give to you what you put in to it. If you are a loner and do not care to socialize, then they will respect your privacy. If you love to jump in and volunteer they will let you and most likely put you in charge of something! LOL!! I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!
