My child has been at this school since she started school. I love this school. The teachers and all staff are great and help the students in every aspect. This is a small school with a Great big heart for every student. In my opinion every teacher,staff member and principal are the best I've ever seen, they care about every student and no all us parents very well. I feel my child is very educated, very safe and taught very well. I thank each and every teacher,staff member,child and parent for giving my child the best years and education that she will ever expierence at her first and only elementary school she will attend. They all are the best. And they care about every child individually and together.We love you all, and thank you all very much! If it was scored 1 thru 10 I would give them a 10.

My childs first yr was last yr. By the end of school, most all teachers new my childs name, grade, and my husband and I personaly. I feel comfortable knowing, someone can't just take my child, because they know us all. And the education has been wonderful. The rewards they get just makes me as a parent push harder for my child to particapate. The teachers and staff are so down to earth, never make you feel out of place. It's a small school with a lot of respect!!!

I've been very pleased with the acedemics and the teacher involment. My children were new last year. The teachers were very patient with teaching my children because they did things differently here. I was even given papers so I can help my children at home understand. I really don't think they could have done any more for them. This school is outstanding compared to out previous school.
