Teachers were very supportive and cared about my education. Being a charter school, they have physical education for students while others do not and they have so much school pride. The community gets together every year and hosts a fundraiser event called "Fiesta" and students get to perform and parents volunteer to make food. Teachers and staff serve at booths and play games with students.

I've only been to three schools in my whole entire life and this was by far my favorite school. Everyone cares for everybody. They encourage each other. Every teacher that I had in the 8 years I attended always showed so much care for each student. No matter how hard headed the students were they never gave up. I wouldn't change anything about this school but one thing I would do is give back to this school. This school helped me so much and giving back is the perfect way to show how much I appreciated all they did for me.
My all time favorite teacher had to be my first grade teacher Ms. Qavi. She was sweetest and most caring teacher I have ever had. She had so much patience with me. I left my second grade class knowing how to do long division and I was reading at a 4th grade level. She challenged us and even when we wanted to give up she kept pushing us to do better. Our class was always fun and we reenacted plays and sang songs. I wish that she could be my teacher for one more year.
