This is a wonderful school. My son started Aug. 2013 in the second grade. Mrs. Waters, his teacher, is awesome. She's very attentive to who he is as a person and his needs. She also keeps the doors of communication open. She challenges her students and loves introducing advanced topics just to wake up their minds. I am pleased with the level of diversity as well. Parent involvement is over-the-top. At each PTA meeting, there is usually a performance by one of the grades. Fourth grade did a performance on Africa with props and all. It was grand. Although I do not know the principal well, I assume her leadership is great as the school itself is. This year they are focusing on ensuring any students who are struggling receive the extra help they need. My son is actually struggling a bit in reading and writing. His teacher recommended a tutor in the school, who is also the G/T teacher. Since this is not a Title I school, tutoring is not free, but I do mind paying for the high- quality one-on-one help he receives. Everyone works together for the good of the school and the children. I'd recommend this school to anyone!

School is great.....teachers are young and enthusiastic! Clean and fairly new school. Parent involvement is great and doors to front office are kept lock which is a plus. My son learned a lot his kindergarten year. Mrs. LaGory taught him a lot! Very smart and caring teacher. Will continue out to 5th grade
