This school has tremendous leadership! Most teachers clearly love their students. Principal's expectations for teachers are high as are the teachers' expectations for the school. Great place to send your child.

Posted July 28, 2006

I haven't been impressed with the school, one teacher in particular. My daughter hated it, and cried every morning about having to go. This is not a good sign. After talking to the teacher, she made it sound like it was something my daughter was bringing on herself. By approaching this teacher, it made things more difficult for my daughter in class. Therefore nothing was ever resolved.
