This is the quintessential neighborhood elementary school where everyone wants to further our children for the better. A very active parent community too.

The school does not challenge children who perform above grade. There is no leveling and even after talking to my child's 5th grade teachers about challenging her, and being assured they'd work with her, nothing happened. It is very hard to move into a school system that does not level from one that does. Essentially, my daughter repeated 5th grade. Also, the old Principal did not care. I hear the new one this year is much, much better.

Our three children went here and we loved this school. It was a warm and nurturing place to learn and grow intellectually and psychosocially.
