This is a true community school - before/after school program, special enrichment courses at no charge thanks to the dedicated parent council, teachers who really get to know their students due to small classrooms and all the amenities you expect in a city school in a family-oriented environment. Plenty of opportunities to get involved as much as you want without pressure. New principal with fresh ideas and a supportive staff who seem to know every child by name. The school nurse is caring and knowledgeable. We will miss this school!
Great school with a strong parent council, incredible teachers, and a friendly staff. They have great programs where everyone involved in the programs makes a difference in the children's education. I was impressed with the after-school enrichment program, the after-school running club, which promotes happy and healthy kids, and to see my child do very well in the first grade. Great teacher quality, incredible leadership with the new principal, and parents are involved all around.
My son is in 1st grade. this is his first year in public school and we were nervous. I have to say I am so happy with this school! His transition was very easy. Before school started they had an ice cream social, we got to go and meet kids in his class and teachers. They have really worked with him as he was already very proficient in reading and spelling. They accomodated him very well! We are just so happy with this school!!!
