What a wonderful place for our children. I have to say that the teachers are outstanding! The Special Education Dept should win awards for their outstanding dedication and inspiration to the special needs kids. My son loves the extra help which allows him to stay in the regular classroom, but always knows that the special teachers have his back. I never want him to leave this outstanding school.
