Mrs. Fischer for teaching the art of music an performance to our child. Every year, the performances just gets better and better! That takes dedication and effective leadership from the teacher and great student commitment as a result of that.

Our child is currently in 8th grade and has never experienced unfriendliness or unkind acts from her peers. I know this could fluctuate,in any given year in any school. However, at school they are very proactive when it comes to teaching students respect. There were positive changes done(as a result of parents being proactive ) in the advanced math curriculum for students and we are very pleased with the school's "open door policy"including the current Principal. My child took entry exams for a private highschool and scored the Highest score among all entrants. As a result of that, was offered a generous scholarship.But, with all the Positve changes done at the Highschool level, it will be a very hard decision to make!

Great school, especially with the new superintendent and principal focusing on a more robust curriculum. The majority of teachers are engaged, enthusiastic, and want the children to be successful. The school climate is positive and excited. My child is involved in lots of activities which is a huge benefit of a small school. Things have changed and are getting better. I recommend the school to anyone reading the posts.

We have found that MOST of the teachers at this school care deeply and work hard to help the kids. The only complaints I have are the Art Teacher (who just doesn't seem to care or like kids) and the P.E. Teachers whom always seem to be 'just hanin' out and are not physically involved in what the kids are doing and seem to just bark orders from the sidelines, especially when the kids are outside. I would call them apathetic at best. That said, the math, and science teachers are phenomenal. The English teaches are very good but a bit disorganized. Still I would say they are above average as test scores show. Over all it s a great school for its size. One suggestion give the front desk/receptionist lessons in friendliness and enthusiasm!

Our 6th grader has had an excellent experience. The teachers have been fantastic and been very encouraging of our child's development. The music program has been wonderful and there have been many opportunities for sports and extracurricular activities.
