  • Great Place to work!!Teacher/Staff 03/22/2017
    I love working here because there is much time provided for the teacher to prep. Also, it is very family oriented so if you have young children the administrators are really understanding if things have to be done for them. I love working here because it provides me with the opportunity to work stress free.
