About this school

We have positive relations with our neighbors. Our building and grounds are fully utilized by the school community during the day and the neighborhood families in the evenings and on weekends. We have two marvelous murals in our building that are the result of many members of our community (adults and children) coming together to create them. We are moving upward and onward daily.
