Early childhood programs are extremely efficient. Location is convenient. They keep up with technology and safety very well and keep the parents informed. Special education is also very productive but would like to see more room for kids to go if they need title one help.

I like were the school is at. Easy for the kids and parents to get the kids to school. The only thing I would change is how many snow days we get a year, cause one is not enough.
