Great Staff/Great Principal. The teachers are very patient and caring with the kids. A very relaxed atmosphere, NOT like a prison, as some schools are. The teachers are very supportive of the kids, given the sad situations that some of the students are in. They are very generous and kind. The school is very accommodating to those families that have special needs. A small school with a big heart. We are blessed that our two little girls were able to attend this school.

I HAVE TO SAY THAT WHEN A PARENT BECOMES INVOLVED IN THEIR CHILDS EDUCATION THIS SCHOOL GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND TO WORK WITH THE PARENT, BUT THEY ARE A LITTLE SLOW WITH THE FIRST CONTACT. THEY MAKE THE EFFORT TO KEEP PARENTS INFORMED BUT THE PARENT HAS TO SHOW THAT THEY WANT TO BE, I WOULD PREFER A SCHOOL THAT STARTED THE INITIAL CONTACT RATHER THAN WAITING FOR PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES. SOMETIMES THAT CAN BE TOO LATE FOR THE PARENT TO BE REALLY EFFECTIVE.

We have a great staff who work hard to provide a wide variety of opportunities for the students. It's a small public school providing the equivalent of a private liberal arts education.
