All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

Our son had a wonderful kindergarten teacher and she was great at keeping the lines of communication open! I personally did not care for the administration. The school corporation as a whole plays favorites and focus on consequences rather than prevention. The class size is too big in my opinion; 22 in our son's kindergarten class. Some of the staff is rude and unprofessional. The students are required to put their heads down and not talk after they finish their lunch. Parent involvement could be better. The primary school is brand new and therefore is very clean and there seems to be appropriate space. If parents are involved and care about their children's education then the staff make more effort to remain in contact with parents.

My daughter was so unhappy here! Some of the staff is snippy and rude to these young children who are just getting their foundation for education. They don't get enough time to socialize - not enough recesses and after the finish their lunch they are not allowed to talk and have to put their heads down on the table for the remainder of lunch time!! How are they supposed to learn to make friends!? There are some great teachers, though. The curriculum was fun and engaging - just too much work and not enough play.

The staff really cares about the children and is concerned about the education. I've had nothing but good experience with this school.
