My son and my daughter went to this school. The admin secretaries are great, however, there are issues with 4th/5th grade teaching staff. One particular teacher screams at the students. The principle of this school does not take parents seriously, and does not think he and his staff are able to do wrong. He does not have an open door policy when you as a parent have concerns, nor takes complaints or constructive criticism about any of his teaching staff. Curriculum is week. The school has barely passed Natl report card in 2011, and failed in 2010.
My daughter attended only for K-1, because we moved, and she loved it. The class sizes are small, parents are welcome in the classroom and on fieldtrips, and the office staff knows the kids by name. The kids go to art, music, and P.E. each week with different instructors. Partners In Reading is available for children who need help. My daughter went from not reading at all to reading 'Step 2' books on her own, and being able to recognize words that were spelled out loud in just a few months. The teachers are all wonderful and make sure that each child is getting the attention and time that they need. My Father-In-Law brought his 18-wheeler to the school and sent the kids postcards. That is just one of the ways the schools exposes the children to new learning experiences. This is an absolutely wonderful school.
