Excellent. 5 STAR EDUCATION AND ENVIRONMENT!!!! I wish I had time to write more. The education and staff are wonderful. This is a special school. The office is extremely organized and the principal is one of the best in the region. The classrooms are controlled and efficient...A terrific learning environment. It is truly a unique and special school in every way. It's no wonder they have created a fantastic environment for children in which to grow and learn. They have produced many successful youth. I never had a complaint. My children never had a complaint. They loved the school and have great memories. This is one of the few schools that deserves a 5 star rating in every category.
