My children have been attending this school since Kindergarten and I am very happy with the education program and the intimate setting that allows the children to be more like siblings than just classmates. The teachers are caring and are always actively improving their methods. Our principal is always on the lookout for new technology to keep our school competitive with what other school are doing. This isn't easy on our limited budget, so we thank him immensely!

Quite possibly the greatest small school in the north state area. The teachers are wonderful, the environment is great, and the children seem to care greatly about one-another. The structure of the school requires children to work independently at times, which forces the children to embrace self-responsibility at a young age. Children with adequet self motivation will do very well in life when exposed to this type of an environment. We are so pleased to be a part of this district.
