I believe this school is excellent. The teachers are very qualified and take their job very seriously. The children appear to enjoy school. It has a real family atmosphere . I am retired but still have fond memories of the time that I worked at this school.

Don't do enough in the way of bullying and stuff that goes on inside the school...the teachers are too demanding on the kids and don't give them enough time to gather their things,also they don't have enough time for lunch.
