My daughter attended this school for a year (second semester of 2nd grade and part of 3rd Grade). 2nd grade teacher was more caring about students. My daughter had a problem with another child at the schoo. The principal took action. Problem was solved. Too bad, I have to move. The school is almost a mile from my apartment. This school is very small which is more manageable. Most schools have problems with their students because the students (themselves) have problems at home. They have no respect for other people or private property. Parents have the most responsibility on this matter, however, they try to blame the schools. My daughter has so far attended three different schools and she rans with the same problems. Education starts at home!

I love the school and teachers. My kids have learned a lot and I know their teachers were always willing to help me them out.

The school is in a safe residential area. The campus has a track field for the kids to run, a library, a computer lab, and a great auditorium, which the faculty used for a ten minute extra night time reading for the kids. The average number of sutudents may be below 20 per teacher. I was not sure to send my child to that school however; as the school year went by, I started to get satisfied with the teachers performance. The school staff would have to improve their performance for me to rate them five stars.
