School Reviews

This is an excellent grade school. All 3 of my kids go to school, from pre-K to 3rd grade. I know all of the teachers personally and know the quality of care and education my kids get. My 2 older kids have gone to other schools, both private and public, and last year we attempted homeschooling as well. I feel as though this school is the most structured school, some of the teachers at other schools could care less about my kids personal needs or learning disorders (my son has auditory processing disorder). The teachers and administrators have strong values and compassion for their students. The school is secure as well, I don't have to worry about someone having access to my kids who should not have access to my kids. I am not sure why this summary of the school ony lists 3 teachers and 45 students, there are at least 7-10 teachers, not to mention aides in some classes and aftercare workers as well as the administration staff. Anyway, I highly recommend this school, I think it is a tremendous asset to the community.

Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
