Posted March 19, 2012

My daughters attend at this school since 2009. The teachers have being nice to my older daughter which has spent 2-4th grade. I would love teachers to find the time to interview with parents about their children more often to tell us the development of kids. Not just the awards night. I try to support my children being in sports, or anything to get more involved with the school. I'm happy when there is a chance to help at school, because I know my children like to see me around helping. The area and neighborhood is nice, I recommend it. I haven't seeing apartments for rent, just houses around
