School Reviews

I attended school here for 7th and 8th grade. It is some of my fondest memories. The education was great, Sister Jonice was a great teacher and principal. I believe the years were 69, 70 and 71. My class mates were all very nice people and I am so happy my parents sent me to this school. 5 star rating for sure
