I love this school. My daughter went here from Kindergarten through some of 2nd grade. We had to move and I wish we could have taken this school with us! The art program is really good, I love that they have more than one recess a day, and I felt like my child was safe there. I would give anything to have her back at this school!

Great school! My daughter attended this school for all of her elementary years. Very good teachers. Very caring atmosphere and they really encourage parent involvement. Lots of very educational field trips, also. One of the best, in my opinion!

I have had children attending this school for several years,I have a 16, 12, and 8 yr old and they all have attended or are attending this school. They do an outstanding job of keeping parents informed of your childs strengths weaknesses, etc. If your child has an area of concern, they do what has to be done to help him/her succeed. They have great policies on discipline and all that as well.
