Great School!!! WE love the teachers, principal and other staff members. Fabulous orchestra program and a great learning environment. The building is only in its 4th year of operation, it is fabulous and has a great playground. The PTA here also has some really great activities.

Everyone is there for the children, not for self-interest. It is a small enough children that teachers and children know eachother throughout the school, not just in the individual classes.
