I am not impressed with the school, teachers, or principal. Communication is subpar at best. I am not referring to the massive quantities of emails sent, but the actual communication a parent needs from a teacher regarding their child's performance in class. I haven't found assignments to be engaging for the students. Occasionally, a project will arise and will spark a small interest, but that seems to only be the case because the general assignments are bland and distinctively MCAS driven. I also find it strange many teachers seem unwilling to regularly allow a parent volunteer into their actual classroom. This seems counterintuitive, considering a well managed volunteer is easily an asset to both the teacher and the class, simply by freeing up the teacher s time to concentrate on students that need more individualized attention. I find the lack of individualized attention is the primary issue with this school. Not all is negative about this review. There are interesting options available to students via the Expanding Horizons program; that being said, it hardly makes up for the lack of creativity and individual attention in the classroom environment.

The school is architecturally magnificent, the teachers are dedicated, the principals have been exceptional, the students are wonderful, friendships made in kindergarten between students, teachers, and parents have lasted through four years of college and counting.

The world's greatest elementary school. I just can't say enough about the wonderful teachers and administrators who run this top notch school. All of their professionals are extremely highly qualified, from the teachers to the special needs assistants. Not only is their special needs department beyond compare, they also cater to the gifted student and all in between. No matter where your child is in their learning experience, they will make sure that their needs are met and exceeded. I just can't say enough about how everyone goes way beyond what is required. They all obviously have a passion for their careers and it shows.
