My children attend all three levels of this school. The schools are consistently working to improve the quality of education in each building using research-based teaching methods. Teachers are dedicated to helping all students improve and put time in after and before school for any student that needs it. The teacher-student ratio is excellent and teachers take a real interest in each student. The administration is friendly, easy to approach, and provides solid leadership. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a place where students are more than a number.
