    "Fantastic school. I went there and absolutely loved it. The teachers were great, the staff was great, and most importantly the curriculum was great. This school has an ESL program, and the great thing is they have multiple teachers who speak different languages. The classrooms usually have an aid to help the students. The school also has events such as movie nights, reading nights, volleyball tournaments, and of course basketball games. As a parent of a child who now goes there I have to say this school is pretty great. The pricipal has changed, and I'm not a huge fan of him, but the assistant principal Dr. Archibald is amazing. The office staff is also great. The only downside is that when I attended the school I rarely swathe nurse in her office, at some point I wasn't even sure that we had one. Overall great school, Send your kids here!"
