Great Principal and staff! I have met the principal and several of the teachers. Each of them have been extremely kind every time I have visited the school. I have also been very impressed by witnessing their interaction with the children as well as by how well behaved the kids were when I was there. On several occasions I saw a child go out of his/her way to help another that had dropped something or needed something and that type of courtesy isn't very common unless it is taught by the parents and teachers.
