Love Four Mile school! Excellent teachers and staff! They go out of their way to teach the kids that need that extra help.. ie, 6 grade buddies, tudors.

We are new to the school 2006. I believe the quality of academics to be fairly high. Each grade level does the same thing & the upper grades have a very general idea of what the earlier grades are learning. I have an art background and the art teacher is top-notch. Programs are set aside to challenge the gifted but I do not feel the bar is high enough. The principal knows her teachers but I have yet to see her visit a classroom unless for discipline. The teachers I have come across have been good to excellent.
