Our family has been really happy at this school -- it is an excellent choice for elementary school and has met our high expectations so far. We have found the teachers to be smart, warm, capable of managing a classroom well, and really good at imparting enthusiasm for learning. The principal, Ms. Collins, is strong, very responsive, and highly committed to continual betterment of the school for all kids, and is well-liked by students, parents, and teachers. There are lots of extra arts, music, and P.E. options that many other schools lack, as well as an awesome, active PTA. We looked thoroughly at many private schools and the other public schools in our zone and neighboring districts, and when comparing the curricula, teacher-student ratio, student achievement, quality of teachers, leadership and responsiveness of the principal, satisfaction of current parents, and price tag, this school really shined. Is it perfect? No. There are many areas for improvement -- for instance, the playgrounds could use a lot of greening. But overall, this is a great school with a great faculty, and we have been really pleased.
