My child attends this school and I am more than pleased. There are great teachers and staff that work harmoniously with each other. They teach not only academics but also the needed attributes for their future lives. I know this is why they are a High Performing School as they should be. I invite anyone to place their child at this school because they are indeed doing all of the necessary requirements for your child's success.

This school is a quaint neighborhood school that houses an excellent faculty and staff. Everyone works together as a team to see that the needs of each child is met. They are sincere in their efforts to 'leave no child behind'. As I have heard the principal say many times, 'all decisions are based on the needs of the children'. I am very proud to be involved with this school. You will not find a more dedicated group of people to work with children.
