While we had a rocky year last year, this school has really improved. I am very happy with the way this school is ran by the administration. The principal (who is leaving to go to another school after this year) has really done a wonderful job keeping the school safe and focused. There are several after school activities that focus on being a good student as well as being healthy and fit.

This is a fabulous school. The teachers are wonderful and so professional. The principal is really supportive of teachers and the parents. The teachers seem to be constantly working to improve. The only area they seem to be struggling with is on their test scores. This school is a nice transition to junior high. Students do some movement around the campus for math time, science lab, art lab and computer lab. They have an amazing computer lab and teacher who has designed school newspapers. Overall, a great school for your child.
