Excellent teachers...they always help you if you need it. Great environment...will send my kids here when I have some!

This is a great school. It is large enough to get a quality education, yet small enough not to get lost in a crowd. Teachers are caring and go above and beyond to make it a great place to learn. The music department gets better every year by offering choir and programs for all students to be involved in. The g/t program recently won an award for outstanding g/t program, continues to grow each year, and also offers activities for all students. I am very pleased that my children attend this school.

We checked the schools here and moved to this town based on the excellent way the teachers interact with the children and it has PE Music Art Gifted/Talented Programs along with the rest of the curriculum. We have always been welcomed and encouraged to help the teachers in any way possible and they want parent involvement. The PTO does a great job fundraising in ways the children have fun and then give that back to the kids and teachers to promote learning. We have Pee-Wee cheerleading, Football, and Basketball. Either sex child is able to participate. We have a girls and boys club for the summers. It is an awesome School with equally awesome staff. A Plus Rating from The Fitts Family

The elementary school is wonderful! can i stress that enough. We have been in this district for 5 years and would not go back to where had come from. The principal is super and i hate to see her go. We are on our last leg of the elementary campus but have one more to go through in 3 more years. Thanks for making learning fun and enjoyable all at the same time!

The elementary school was doing a great job until the superintendent of the school refused to listen to parents and students and sided with a teacher that was clearly in the wrong. Really doesn't give you much confidence in a school system when they want the parents to get involved and the students to excel but in times of conflicts, the policy is just keep your mouth shut. This is wrong, wrong, wrong! Some students are having to work at regaining their self-worth again.

The elementary school does an outstanding job and with the exception of the GT and Pre AP programs it continues into middle and high school. The GT program does not carry over with the level it needs to be addressed. Students in middle and high school programs are not given the attention they need in this area and meet only irregularly and do not have specific classes like they need. As for the AP classes, what is offered is good, but it could be beter and much more diverse.
