I love this school and everyone in it. The teachers are all wonderful at their jobs and they really care about the children.

This school is great for a "normal" child. However, if your child does not fit in their "box", you have a battle on your hands. Parents are told no to remedial help during the year, then the school expects the child to participate in summer school for the remedial help. IEP's evaluations are requested and never done based on the teachers evaluation of the student. The principal can't take her head out of the sand long enough to realize how this school discriminates against children that need additional federally mandated assistance. Medical slips are turned in for excused appointments, yet you get letters regarding truancy. The phone tree is nice, but would be better if it were only used for school emergencies rather than community items. All in all, the teachers do care about their students and they make it a friendly environment; however anything other than a normal child will require you to pull your hair out over the treatment of the staff. The teachers for the special classes (gym, music, and art) are the best! They couldn't get any better. The school has the ability to be a 5 star school, but they need to make a lot of changes to get there.

The school has a lot of potential, but on the same hand needs some improvement. Better judgement in timing needs to be used when planning field trips. As for parental involvement, ALL of the PTO board members this year are an embarrassment to our school. Their childish ego's, their gossiping about one another as well as about others and their constant bickering among one another makes participating a definite turn off for most parents. Occasionally they will plan something nice for the kids, but its not enough to compensate for the dark cloud that all of them cast over the school. The principal tries her best to provide a good learning environment and is readily available for conferences with parents.The teachers are absolutely wonderful. They are caring, dedicated and make learning a positive experience for the kids. Full day kindergarten was and still is an unwelcome addition to the school. The bus service reliable. The phone tree is a nice way of keeping parents aware of any important alerts.

My daughter started kindergarten this year and LOVES IT! She would stay all day if she could. She loves learning and interacting with the other children. The staff and administration are top notch.

My son was the last of the half-day kindergarteners and we were so glad to hear that the district finally implemented full-day for incoming kids (like most forward-thinking communities). My son was so bored with daycare/pre-school/YMCA that full day would have been a blessing! Young children are sponges, just excited to learn and grow. They NEED intelligent stimulation, not video games and DVD's. Parents need to understand that with any new adjustment, it takes time and preparation, not degredation of the school or principal. Work together with your teachers and community to help these kids work SMARTER, not harder to become independent adults. The world it a tough place and the sooner they learn discipline and that hard work on themselves will get them farther in life, the better. I love the school, both teachers my son has had, all the activities the school has provided us with, and especially the principal, Connie Bales-she is energetic and gives her attention to the important issues at hand. Anyone who disagrees needs to schedule a meeting with her or get more involved with their child's teachers and events, not whine about it online.

Nice looking school & the teachers are really good, but the principal really needs to take it down a few notches & work towards whats actually in the best interest of the children! She runs the school as if its a dictatorship instead of a place where there is an open line of communication and consideration for opinions & fresh ideas. All day kindergarten is a definite downfall of this school. The kids hate it and so do many of the parents .

I think that this school should turn the focus on what's best for the children instead of the principal. All day kindergarden was definately not a good choice! The kids are too young to be at school for 6 1/2 hrs, and it's showing in their behaivor. Something needs to be done about it. Bring back the normal half day for the kindergardeners!
