My son was in the Pre-K4 class. He had a good teacher. I think if there was more parent involvement and if she had more help in the classroom with unruly children it would have been a better experience for my son. He will not be returning. I liked the Principal, I have worked with her before!

My child excelled at this school. It was a combination of staff and parent programs that helped her to increase from A-C grades to A and A-B Honor Roll.


Posted April 1, 2009

This school has a very unwelcoming enviornment from it's personal. Quality and educational standards of this school are far below what they should be and seem to have been going down every year. I do not recomend this school to anyone.
