In a time were many schools are making cut back in their quality of education, we continue to strive and offer the highest level for our children.

We provide open houses, quartly parent-teacher conferences. Parents are encouraged to reveiw their childrens lessons daily. Teachers and direcot are available every day for questions. A monthly newsletterand calendar goes out to the families. Our web page also holds the same information for on-line look-ups.

We do a great deal of community servies through out the year. We believe as educators we should not only teach academics but social awareness too. We do food-drives, shoe drives and we adopt families during the holidays.

  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation

We look at each case indiviually. Our goal is to set up your child for success. So we will take your childs needs on a individual basis and set up an enviroment that will suit them.
