I had two children attend this school last year. The youngest one did well but the large class size seemed too overwhelming to be a good learning environment. Some kids that could not keep up did not receive sufficient attention because there weren't enough resources. Parents really need to be more involved in their children's education now days. Also, we contributed to the class fundraiser and never saw where the funds were spent. My older student did well also but I don't think the teacher challenged the classes writing skills and pushed the importance of proper fundamentals often enough. Writing is an important foundation that should start in elementary school and be continously cultivated throughout adulthood. The demand only gets greater. Burnett's PTA is almost non-existence. Harldy any parent's or teacher's actively participate.

I can't comment on parental involvement in this school, but I can comment on being a father of a kindergarten Teacher. This teacher has an enormous amount of love and devotion to her kids. She carries her dedication to them twenty-four day, constantly trying to improve ways to get her kids off on the right step to the next level of their education. If the teachers in this school have learned anything from her, it must be a great school.
