I really enjoy how close knit the school is. One of the many things I like about the school, is how they keep everyone in the loop. All PD's and meetings are inclusive of teachers, TA's, etc. I feel making sure everyone is aware and knowledgeable helps the school run great and the students always feel like everything is under control.
