This school is awesome. The teachers made my sons first year , in kindergarten a wonderful one. They will go out of their way to help the child with issues before punishment. They have been absolutely great to my daughter and son! I would love to really point out one teacher who has been the greatest Mrs.Gillespie, she was a great friend, to us all, plus a teacher, and friend to my son! he loved her he didnt wanna leave kindergarten for first grade.
