Currently my daughter is enrolled for the past 3 years, and wow... this school is really dynamic. There focus is on my daughter - they are small and give a lot of attention to every student. But they offer so much - Computer Coding is new and they really have sparked her creativity and given her a focus that she never had in elementary school. The new principal has made great changes and this school is really a gem.
