This school is a wonderful place. The entire staff is welcoming and genuinely concerned about the children. They have a "school family" feeling. I have volunteered in 4 classrooms, and I am constantly impressed with what the children are accomplishing. They are engaged and excited. My children have very different learning styles, and both their needs are being met. I can't imagine my children attending any other school.
This will be my childrens' second year at this school. We are a military family, and move often. This is one of the best schools my children have had the opportunity to attend. The teachers are great, and are really interested in helping the children learn. Dr. Silvertooth is amazing, and cares about each child as if they were his own - with a kind word and a smile for everyone. This school is also extremely supportive of the military children that attend.
I've had 3 children attend this school. It is one of the most sought after schools in the area. Teacher turn over rate is non existent and Dr. Silvertooth, the principal, is a treasure. The class sizes tend to be maxed out due the high interest in this school. However, the education my children received was outstanding. They were definitely focused on learning, even with full classes as opposed to discipline. If you have the opportunity to buy a house in this school zone, definitely do! It's worth it.
