The school is a beautiful buiding. The staff is very much hit or miss. If your child is lucky enough to get the preferred teachers, he will be fine. If he gets the teachers that should no longer be teaching that are protected by the union, it will not be a good experience at all. They are horrific. I agree that the staff often looks the other way in regards to solving issues. There is a huge helicopter parent problem as well. I have never soon so many moms and or dads spending countless hours hovering, planning ridiculous over the top holiday parties-and fighting about it. Not for us.

Nice school,however the administration does not work with parents to resolve problems. Lacks support and good leadership from the principle( unless you are in the click).

My 2 daughters attend this school and I am so happy to have moved into a district that has such an amazing school. My daughters have thrived in this school and I recommend it to anyone thinking of moving here you should make the move. The teachers care and they always let you know when your child needs extra attention and are always willing to work with you to help them. What more can you ask for?

My husband and I joke all the time that this school is too beautiful to be an elementary. Not only is it a LEED certified school with more windows than you can imagine, it also has an excellent group of caring teachers. Our daughter could not be in a better learning environment!

My son has loved his last 2 years at the school. This is what a school should be like. Very progressive, yet traditional in the areas a parent wants to see.
