This is a marvelous neighborhood school! My three kids all went there. Sure, it is older, but newer is not necessarily better. This school has heart and is small enough to take care of every student in a special way and educate them well. The teachers are fabulous. I was glad my kids went there rather than the larger, newer schools elsewhere in the district. When they are young, a small school is best. I work in a school (in a different district) and I know whereof I speak. Don't be fooled by bells and whistles. GREAT SCHOOL.
