Fantastic school! My son went there from kindergarten through 4th grade. It was a positive, loving, learning environment. I am looking forward to sending my daughter there in 2006.

In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama Reading and Mathematics Test (ARMT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math. The ARMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
