I love this school! The school functions are always well organized, great teachers that truly care about their students and their growth. They do not tolerate bullying of any kind and address any issues quickly. I have three children there and have not had any issues at all. Absolutely love it

Great Elementary school. Organized, well kept, informative. Best principal ever! She cares about her students, makes sure they have all they need, and is very supportive with parent involvement. Love this school. If you want your child to succeed this is where they should attend.
