the school is a good school, but we need more parents involved to make it a better school for our students.... really we can't complain about any problems, unless we ourselves try and do something to help out... join pta it's great, and then of course you will have a voice!!!!

Excellent teachers. Low student to teacher ration, the smaller class sizes make a great learning enviornment. Great school overall

This is a good school. My son has done well here in the 3rd grade the teachers are great nice and caring. The staff is good too. The only thing I dont like is when the kids get out of school I dont think they watch well enough so you have to be right thier and of course parking is bad.
