I went to this school for part of my second and part of my third grade year. I'm now in tenth grade. I met many nice teachers. I remember the cards they sent home. If it had red, you were bad, green was excellent, yellow was you were okay, maybe a couple of problems...I didn't get to stay here long, but I miss everyone!

The problem at this school is the principal. She is cold and undesirable. I have twice tranferred my children out! It's absolutely horrible.

The teachers at this school have been great. The class size is small, and my son really enjoys school. My only complaint in 3 years has been persistant problems with the afterschool care program. The director and staff are inexperienced with children in discipline. The have not adequately responded to discipline issues with several children in the program. Just today my son along with the other children were sat in a gym for 20 minutes silently because they were 'not following the rules of the game.' Seems a bit harsh for kindergarten through 5th grade. This issue remains unresolved, and I will update these comments as they become resolved. I chose to transfer my son to this school because of afterschool care, and next year will be transferring him out.

Wonderful teachers that spend lots of time encouraging and working one on one with students. My children have learned more here than any school they've attended. The after care program leaves a bit to be desired, which is the only complaint I've ever had. The principal is anxious to talk to parents and listen to concerns, and the teachers call when there is a problem. This school really makes you feel as though a team effort is going into your child's education, and I couldn't be more pleased.
