I love this school. The teachers are very friendly, The staff is very helpful. There is an after school program for the kids, plus the school doors open at 750 a,m, which is awesome for working parents.

Dont judge a book by its cover. This school doesnt look as a state-of-the art school however, the quality lies in the great staff that serve this small school. Only in small schools can staff keep close track of every student, evaluate their progress individually. Everybody knows everybody in this school which makes it a great school both academically as well as provide a second home for the children that attend.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
