This school doesn't get a high academic rating now, but it is not do to lack of talented teachers and great instruction. My children have went to this school 8 years combined so far and I open-enrolled them for good reason. This school may be struggling to work with lack of funding and resources, and its own economical and geographical disadvantages but you won't see that stop their strong principal Mr. Lord from doing all he can to make this school the best. The school's friendly atmosphere reminds me of a smaller town school. Each child is greeted by name by one of the teachers or staff members. One of the office staff members, Deb knows the name of almost every child. She is so helpful and like the rest of the staff she makes you know your child is safe. I am very happy with this school.
