This school ROCKS (ok, mostly). The administration is great, but some of the teachers are rude. My daughter's third grade teacher is awesome and my daughter loves her. I wish there was more communication to me about how my daughter is doing. I am not going to simply drop her off and let the school have her for the day. I expect them to work with me if she is struggling in any area. It should not be a surprise when the report cards come home. I love this school because my daughter loves this school. And anyone who can make my daughter like school gets an "AAAA+++++++"

In 2012-2013 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.
