This is a great school for parents looking for a no frills, solid education. The principal runs the school with a genuine heart for the kids and their education. The teaching staff is great and there's a definite sense of community at this school. As the other reviewer said, there are no fancy facilities, but our child has learned so much in the last year and now halfway through this school year. The class sizes average around 25 with two classes for each grade. The school also offers many extra curricular activities; sports, arts, music. Great school. Great community! Can't rave about it enough!
