I agree that this school is definitely not the best in the district. The staff is a very unprofessional, gossipy bunch. I was appalled by their behavior and the fact that they would bad mouth their students and parents behind closed doors. Ugh! It's a shame too because the other schools in this district are so outstanding. I guess there is a black sheep in every bunch.

We choose this district because of the high ratings. I have been really disappointed. A lot of what my children learned this year they had already learned the previous year. The school is not family friendly. I could not bring my toddler to school parties, or field day, etc. Having lunch with my child was just short of a nightmare. They take few educational field trips. I cannot wait for my child to start a new district next year.

Wonderful principal, very involved and loves the students! Building and technology could use some updating. Great experience for K but made it a few months into 1st and removed my daughter. Teacher was not taking care of other children exhibiting very inappropriate behavior and I was done. Market Day is really neat and school has minimal fundraisers. I've never had an experience where a public school charged for books though, $78 per child. Also, field trips were frequent and can get expensive. There are plenty of different ways parents can help out. Overall decent experience, average public school.

Principal leadership has alsways been outstanding. Veteran teachers likewise. The opportunities for parent involvement are never ending. This is a wonderful school!

Great school for kids. Only downside - no advanced curriculum for gifted children.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
