This school closes down on days because the budget is so bad. The school is proud and spends less on each student than the national average. It is all about getting parents overly involved in teaching at home. Teachers use lots of peer pressure to get the kids to speek French in class. It's a challenge to get services for kids who are behind. Budget problems!

Great teachers, French Immersion at no additional cost makes this school a gem.

My son is in kindergarten - family life has been very difficult this year and the teachers, administration and guidance have been absolutely outstanding.

One of the very few public schools where they have Montessori and French Immersion as two options with traditional school. Great teachers, good and involved Parents association.

Strong community and parent doesn't get enough voice with the school system. More needs to be communicated to the parents.

Abundant and varied learning activities, Technology and creativity are explored in meaningful and practical ways. Students are exposed to electronic media and apply its uses to the world around them. The French Immersion program is a fully rigorous program and ingrains students with the understanding to achieve the highest standards of learning.

This school is wonderful, the teachers and administrators are involved and parent participation is expected and that's great. They offer traditional, Montessori and French Immersion. Class size is an issue in all schools but the town continues to vote the money asked for to keep the schools top notch. I wish I had a school like this as a child.
