Posted December 11, 2008

My sons recently got transfer from a good school in Florida, and I was afraid that their expectations wouldn't be met. I was very surprise to see how well this school continues to do. I was a student here many years ago, and the though it's mostly new staff members the priorty on their students, and their work is still very strong. I'm very happy I chose this school.
