School Reviews

I love this school. I've been here my whole life and it's honestly like a second home to me. As of this year I'm an eighth grader and my experience has been amazing. For pre-k up until 6th grade you have a weekly work plan and are able to work independently and with other students. Middle school has a class schedule and different teachers to give more of a smooth transition into high school. The music and sports programs here are great as well, I've been a part of the choir since third grade. The transition to digital learning has been difficult, but it has been for everyone, and is no fault of the school. I've made wonderful friends here and everyone is so supportive, there are no bullies.
