A big thanks to Stephanie Irving for assuming leadership of the pre-k class and preparing my daughter for her year in kindergarten. Because of Ms. Irving's dedication to teacher my daughter has thrived in kindergarten and loves school more then ever. She even aspires to be a teacher!
We have a acroymn the students use called PRIDE which sum up integrity, fairness and honesty. The students earn comet cash based on their performance against the PRIDE model. They all know it and love it.
The new administration (McBride/ Baez/ Alexander) are a tremendous improvement to the school. They are doing so much to help the kids learn - not just meet the county/state requirements, but actually focusing on learning!
Great neighborhood school, small setting and family atmosphere. Scores do not do this school justice. We moved to the Kingsley neighborhood this summer. My child just started here in Kindergarten and is thriving. He loves going to school, loves his teacher and is excited about learning. His reading, math and writing skills have grown exponentially since he started. Our experience here has proven the "scores" wrong. As another rater commented... it is a hidden gem. Great principle and staff. Good parental involvement.
Ms. Daly and Ms. Fulton and their whole team are doing such a FANTASTIC job getting academic resources and special support to all the students, but especially to the ones who need it. The Bookroom is a TERRIFIC resource.
