Posted December 2, 2010

I have to disagree with the other reviews. Both of my children were in this school and had two very different experiences. One was a well liked, outgoing child who learned easily and was a staff favorite. The other child was shy and struggled with an undiagnosed learning disability. I could not get child #2 evaluated for the learning disability at this school. An evaluation for learning disabilities was repeatedly put off - "there's a long wait list". After a long, horrible school year and no eval, I decided to pay for an independent neuro to perform the testing and my child was finally diagnosed with a memory based learning disability. Child #2 is in a different school now, has the appropriate classroom support and is thriving!. If your child does not have a LD, then this school is a nice little school. BUT I caution you to go elsewhere if your child is dealing with a LD...or least put all communications with the staff in writing so they are forced by law to respond in a timely manner. I wish I had known the law better when my child was in this school.

This school ,however small, is the best school I know, I'm a student there, And I absolutely love it, there are great teachers, And just nice people all around, very encouraging. With a small school, everybody knows everyone's name, There are many after school activities, such as: Odessy of the Mind, Girl Scouts, and Garden club. This school covers many subjects, including Computer, Math, Social Studies, Language Arts, Library, Music, Art, Science, Gym, And Spanish. We are really just one big family. We follow the golden rule (treat others the way you want to be treated), And have the 3 R's (respect, responsibility, and reflection) I love it, everyone I know loves it, It really is great. If you or your child wants a fun, wonderful,educational,small, everything school... This is the school for you!

Both of my children attend this school and I love it. It is small, with a family atmosphere. Because of its size, it hasa lot of flexibility with regard to parent involvement, and the staff is open to and encouraging of ideas for parent involvement. We've had lots of after school clubs, suggested by parents, that have been well attended and have added to the children's experiences. It's a great little school.

With small class sizes and excellent teachers, this school is consistantly rated one of the best in the state.
