I've have four children who have attended this school with one child still attending. I can't say enough wonderful things about this school and the faculty. Like all schools they are not perfect, but they always tackle the issues with love and compassion. The atmosphere is that of a big family. The teachers and staff have an open door policy where open communication is encouraged to make the school a better place. The staff and school will always hold a special place in our hearts.
