This really is a wonderful school. The teamwork and dedication of the staff is really impressive. Under the leadership of a relatively new principal it is clear that the school is on a mission to improve and they are doing an excellent job.

My daughter just started Kindergarten here and we love it so far. All of the staff have been so friendly and welcoming. Her teacher is great, our daughter loves her, she's learning so much already, and her teacher seems to have a remarkable ability to keep 20 five year olds on track. As for parent involvement, at least in the Kindergarten area everyone is involved and helping. Don't let the outdated test scores here fool you, the school has been on a very successful mission, in the last 2 years the scores have improved dramatically.
