My child had to pray before she walked in here! The teacher would yell at her if she asked a question, and she would answer back, kindly saying "I didn't mean to be rude" and the teacher would call her a little demon, and she was nasty to my friends' child also, thank The Lord that they teach Math.......

This was my school from pre- to 3 grade. Only reason I don't go to this school anymore is because I moved to Maryland but this was and always be the best school ever..

I went to this school from third to fifth grade and it was truly amazing. There is a safe learning environment and the teachers are the best of the best.

Great school, Strong leadership from entire staff. Here's a school where the Principal is always involved and shows concern for all involved (students, staff and parents). It's refreshing to see hands on deck from all.

I really like the overall spirit of the school. The Principals, Teachers, Staff and PTA really work well together to create a real family atmosphere of caring and nurturing of the students. The teachers' passion for connecting with each students is amazing and comforting, especially for new students entering the public school system for the first time. The upper class students on honor roll help as "Tutors" in the classrooms to assists Pre-K and K classes. They are delightful and encouraging to the students and act as role models of academic achievers. It is unfortunate that the parent involvement is not higher. The have a wonderful PTA board who are devoted and passionate about giving of their time, but they can't do it all. All parents must know that staying involve in your child's lives inside and outside of the home is a must!

There are lots of educational activities to help kids boost up their love for school and most of all learning. Parents are updated with the schools every day activities.

I so like this school that I wish it would go up to grade 8. It saddens me that my child has to leave after grade 5. The school is great, the Principal is excellent. It the right 'village' to raise a child.
