Develops character: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · February 03, 2017
The teachers teach basic manners like handshakes and please and thank you. They reward students for doing good deeds.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · February 03, 2017
We have a great staff with a nice balance of tenured teachers and new teachers. They are very patient and are effective at communicating with students. The kids are very respectful.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · February 03, 2017
There is a small amount of homework sent-usually only takes 5-10 minutes to complete. This helps keep kids focused but doesn't take up too much family time.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree
Submitted by a student · February 01, 2017
If someone bullies another kid they always deal with it. They always want you to be nice.
