I attended this school from 1995 area, until 2000. And during the time that I was there, the school administration was very involved, caring, and encouraging. The staff, alone, was wonderful. They took many steps in encouraging and special attention to individuals, as well as groups. Ms. Brown, Mrs. Provo, Mrs. Ford, Mr. Carlton, Mr. Schmedly (Spelling?) were all caring and attentive. This school was amazing. Looking back on it now, I feel proud to have gone to this school. And I look forward to having my children attend this school, when we move back down there to Florida. Keep up the good work!

This school is struggling! Some teachers and some grade levels are great, but overall there is a very low morale amongst the teachers and little effort to help other than telling them they need to do better. Much energy, time and resources are spent on throwing out one idea after another to try and improve this school. A very caring place for most children, if you want family-like atmosphere, but this school needs a new approach to administration.
