This is a great school. My grandson attened and now his sister is attending. It is a family atmosphere and the kids seem to like to go to school. We know they "have to" but they don't have to like it. Baron's helps them to 'like' school. Great job, Principal, Teachers, and Others.

I have a 3rd grader, and I am also a former student from the early 70's. I have enjoyed working in my daughter class room for the past 2 years. All though I find that the children are learning so many things in the early years that we didn't learn until 2 grades later. I hope my daughter continues to have a positive experience.
