I give it a 9/10, I've been here since preschool.

This school is amazing. My daughter loves her teachers and friends. I feel that my daughter is well cared for and very safe. Many teachers in the building know her by name. I feel that she is part of a large family when she goes to school. She has only gone for 1 year but she has learned so much; not just academics but social skills as well.
