I have three children at this school, and all three have great teachers. The administration is very engaged and helpful, parents are very involved, and the climate is very positive.
The new principal and staffing overhaul at this school has dramatically improved climate and moral. SMART Boards are in every classroom and two computer labs allow students to access technology, which is a vital component in today's world! Student work is engaging, authentic, and meaningful thanks to the district's new and improved curriculum. This is a great school that is only going to get better :)
There is too much emphasis on 'the four agreements' here at the exclusion of disciplining repeat offenders. My child does not feel she can report another student's inappropriate behavior because 'nothing will be done' [about it]. Academic rigor is taking a back seat to 'unlocking the treasures within.'
