I like the office people they are loving and caring. I like the teachers because they are really nice. The principle loves kids and is very nice to the kids. I like the school because my kids do - and they are always happy. Elayna, Thomas and Mommy Horton

Fantastic school with amazing teachers that really care about helping children succeed! Our 2 daughters attend the school, and we would highly recommend this school to anyone moving to the area.

Our daughter has been going to this upper middle-class school since 1st grade. The teachers and programs are excellent. They split up into groups for the subject (math, reading, etc), advanced kids go to an advanced class, kids that need help go to a more remedial class. Arts, tech and physical ed are given as much attention as other subjects (PE every day). After school daycare (Clubcare) is fun and reasonably priced. Too many days off (and late starts), but that is district's issue, not school's; Doesn't seem to interfere with education.

Very impressed with the teachers attention to individual students. They also are interested in helping the parents get involved. Music and after-school programs impress me. Keep up the good work!
