The principal at this school is not very good with the other staff, and does not handle parents with concerns well at all. The principal frequently talks down to others, and there is a lack of confidentiality. The school boasted last year that finally after a semester of 2nd grade the student learned their addresses after months of work. The learning standards are very low, lots of kids struggle even with low expectations. The teachers do the best they can with what they are supplied with and the limitations that are placed on them. No one, parent or child, should ever feel bad for being different than others be it slow or fast learning skills. This school is not a good fit for any of my children. We hope that this school is able to improve the quality of learning and the quality of respect for the good of the students!

Open classrooms can be a big problem for a lot of kids. Confidentiality about other parents and their kids is a big problem.

This is a very good elementary school! The principal, teachers and support staff care about the children and communicate well to the parents. Parents are very active in this school and are encouraged to be an active participant in their child's learning.
