Posted March 24, 2012

Our child has had an excellent 1st year of school at Pike Lake! The teacher knew which kids needed more challenge and which needed additional help. The entire staff maintain a friendly, caring environment. I was very pleased with the level of parental participation. I had open enrolled my child into this school and have been very happy with that decision!
