Great school which educated my sons
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 25, 2006

I love this school. I was a student since pre-k through 7th grade and since then, I have never found another school quite as this one. This is one of the school that you'll love your child to go to because of their friendly staff and teacher. They push you to be the best you can be and if you step out of line they'll put you right back in it with thier direct displinary action. I love this school with all my heart and I hope that I'll return this year for 9th grade. love, LeCreea Smith
