I absolutely love the hard work and dedication the teachers put forth with all the children! My five year old comes home with something new everyday that she has learned. Teachers and almost all the staff are extremely friendly but, I strongly feel as though the principal doesn't really engaged with African American parents as I enter the school everyday. She never speaks to me which baffles me; seeing that she is African American as well. If your going to smile and be friendly to selected parents, maybe you should re-evaluate your personal standards. Aside from that, I had nothing but the upmost respect for the entire staff. My child truly enjoys that school!

This is a terrific school. My son just finished the 4K program and is excited about going back for 5K. The school itself has a very cozy atmosphere and the faculty is great. The principal knows every kid in the school by name and you can tell that she truly cares about each child.

This school has alot of parent notifications. I love the way they have organization. And the safety of the children the system they have is great also. I never worry about my child at school. He love it! he is 5 and we are just getting started. but, he hasn't had one problem and the teacher he has is very creative with teaching the children. I respect the time and effort that they take with the children.
