Consistently top performing among public schools. Students develop strong study skills early on and dedicated teachers know how to engage every child. Formal enrichment program is also essential. It starts with the principal, qualified educators, and ends with many parents who put in their volunteer hours. Smaller school enjoys better discipline = more time for individualized attention/differentiated teaching.

This school is amazing! The teacher are wonderful, the principal fabulous. It is not very often in todays world that you find such a close knit school, where the teachers are truly dedicated to each and every child. The school does a lot of activities within the community, and the community involvement with the school is outstanding.
