This is a very good school, but with very little tolerance of any monkey business from the children. The teachers are very quick to discipline the children sometimes over silly things. Kids need to learn right & wrong and to be respectful of boundaries, but not in a hyper sensitive world where they are afraid to make a move or they will be reprimanded for just being a kid. My son often came home frustrated because his entire class or study group was penalized for the behavior of one or two kids in the class. Maybe the teacher(s) needed a recess! Overall, I believe the quality of the education here is very good, but there is always room for improvement. There should be an assembly at least once a year. The children should know how to sing the National Anthem (sadly, they don't - - isn't this America?).

The principal at this school is a tough educator with a heart of gold. Any time a parent wishes to meet with her, she will accommodate them. She listens intently and works with you to fix whatever the problem might be. I'm pretty sure that she knows every child in school by his/her first name! She is very involved, and the teachers know who is the boss. Nothing escapes her. There are many excellent educators at this school, most of whom my daughter has had. This is a terrific school. There are also plenty of extracurricular activities to involve your child in. My daughter has a teacher now that we are trying to get a Golden Apple for!
