    Great school. Teachers are attentive to my child’s needs. Small classroom size. Love the technology the school has to offer. Middle/upper SmartLab will be extended to Pk-5th grade! One of the fewest schools to have a full1time nurse.
    Great school with a small class sizes. All of us were extremely close in my grade and we all have friends across the grade levels. The class schedules can be tendered to fit the degree of difficulty the student desires, so everyone can be challenged and succeed. Growing arts program and a strong athletics program offers a multitude of year round extra curricular activities as well as many clubs for all grade levels. Vending machines and food from New Deli provides food throughout the day. Security is already well developed and still being expanded. Gyms and weight room allow athletes to work out on campus for practices.
