Two of my children go here and we are very pleased. They are caring, nurturing, and focused on academics. I would not send my children anywhere else! Congratulations to the staff and administration. Great job!

Our son attended second grade as an open enrolled student and was made to feel welcomed from the very start. Mrs. Clark is an incredible principal and her leadership is evident throughout the school. Very caring teachers and great balance to learning within the school. Great library/media center as well as science labs. We relocated out of state but would recommend this school highly to others moving to the area.
