Handles bullying effectively: Agree
Submitted by a parent · November 05, 2016
They have adopted a new system called PBIS. Will see how effective it is.

Develops character: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · November 05, 2016
The school and teachers are always trying to create a positive environment. But it also takes parents to teach their kids too! Parents have to take a strong position to teach respect and take responsibility for raising their kids.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree
Submitted by a parent · November 05, 2016
Teachers are committed and excellent overall. Some styles vary between different teachers and grades. Some styles may not always mesh with parents and students, but that is life! You need to learn to adjust and that is an important life skill!
