Great teachers over all. I moved schools because of the Science program here and the upper grade teachers. Science CST scores are 85 percent advanced or proficient and my kids now are focused on this career Topic. Outstanding role models and parental figures.

I think the parents aren't involved much in the child's school/education. There could be more activities and sports for children.

The quality of the programs at this school is super. My children have and continue to benefit of the latest technology. The teachers are caring and take the time to discuss the progress of each student on a regular basis. Students are require to follow rules and discipline is apply when not follow. It is important to instill discipline as well as guidence into our children as they are the basic foundation of the future. This school is an A+.

This school is a really great school. I went to this school for 9 years (kinder. - 8th). The Teachers are extreamly nice and they have a great way of teaching the students. The school has recently built a gym for the students. The safety rules of the school is perfect, hardly any students there gets injured. If I was a parent now I would send my kids to that school.
