Does the school have a library? How large is it? How updated are the books? Can students borrow books to read at home?

Library is very small. They get a handful of books every year. Many books have been donated by families leaving. Lots of religiously based books. - Dec 28, 2017
B. The school has two separate libraries, one serving the needs of the Elementary and Middle School, and the other one for the High School. The libraries have seen the number of volumes significantly increase over the course of the last years, as the school is investing and fundraising. The library is well stocked on teaching resources and classroom materials, but still lacks periodicals and reference materials. It has recently provided everyone with an online access to EBSCO. It works actively with Scholastic to organize Book Fairs. The school staffs both libraries each with a full-time employee who is assisted by an electronic library management system. - Sep 20, 2013
A - The library is surprisingly good for how small the school is.My children rarely had problems finding books to read that were appropriate for their reading levels. - Aug 3, 2011
