We can't say enough about Mrs. Sphar, she is truly an asset to our school. We love the teachers and support staff. Although our student body has grown quite a bit this year due to local school closures, it remains a tight knit community with tremendous parent involvement.

This is a great 21st century school where the students are introduced to Project Based Learning in Kindergarten and is carried throughout all grade levels. The teachers are GREAT and love their students. Technology is used in every classroom and students help drive the learning in their classrooms. This school is ahead of the times!

I have had three children attend this school and have been impressed with how the teachers and principal have challenged my children to learn at the level they need. The teachers have welcomed my presence in the classroom. The PTA has started this year (2013-14) off well with a super fun back to school night for the whole family that was very well attended.

This school has a very biased idea of who is eligible and worthy of advanced academic preparedness. There have been students that have demonstrated that they have what it takes to study at higher levels but have been demoted or kept back because they are socioeconomically disadvantaged. They teachers rather single out these students as "behaviorally dissociative" rather than except the fact that they are academically bored. The teacher do not want to communicate with the parents and work on academic plans.

The principal, Mrs. Hayes, is a real asset to this school. She is a 'doer' and gets things done! The teachers are excellent and care about the kids. This year's PTA is the really good. It is well organized and a positive part of this school. Our test scores keep rising at an amazing rate!

Speech & Language therapist is more outstanding then words can say! Resource specialist is absolutely awesome. I would highly recommend this for any child needing these services. Regular Ed teachers have been great, they are very accomodating and truly accept ALL the children!

Mrs Von Minden is a great teacher at this school . the Principal Mrs Hayes is getting this school on track , But it is a slow process. the worse part about this school is A.

Not the best school for promoting original thinking. Principal does not follow through with teacher issues. Upper grades behind in curriculum required at testing. Misspelled words on one teachers bulletin boards... all year!
