I have had two children attend this school in the last four years. There has been a high teacher and administrator turn-over recently. Some teachers are very good at what they do, while a few make it a constant struggle to be positive. A functional gifted program is non-existent here. The school serves a large number of military children and it is adept at handling needs associated with military life. Parent involvement is crucial in order to have a rewarding experience for all parties involved. Funding is always an issue, especially in this statewide (all islands) school district.

Our son did Kindergarten and Grade 1 in this school. Was really impressed with the student to teacher ratio, when it goes over 23 usually another teacher brought in to help lower the ratio. In kindergarten, PE is only once a week, but in Grade 1 it is twice a week which we feel is very important. Have music and computer programs as well which we have found are good as well. Homework sent home each day, not much but enough to keep the work going. Concentrate a lot on reading another important issue. In Grade 1, two reading at home programs are being done. Talking to other parents, there is lots of parent involvement. Over 70% of students are from military families.

I went to this school from I think 1996-1999. It is a wonderful school. It gave me a great start (I am a very successful student now) and privided wonderful leadership. School was so much fun and they made things easy to learn. This has to be one of the best elementary schools in the country (and I've been to a few). It was a very pleasant experience that any child will enjoy.
