Our families are accessible and come when called on. The community is behind us and that is just what we need to continue our forward momentum. Change for the better is here and we will consistently make gains.

Amount of homework:
SCHOOL LEADER
Each teacher assigns homework. The level of the work is dependent on the grade level and skills of the student. Many of our teachers will assist students with their homework during lunch and after school. Homework is practice so that the skills being taught in class are reinforced.

We utilize Restorative Practices within our school as a means to tap into the positive formation of relationships. Building relationships with each and every student and their family is extremely important with our small family-like school. We work with our students on an individual basis.

I am a volunteer at this school. Upon entering you will find a very welcoming atmosphere. The building is very clean (the flors shine, bathrooms spotless, etc). The principal is in the hall, cafeteria and classrooms and he knows the students! The teachers are friendly. The student body is very diverse. I do hope that you will visit this school. Recently the Buffalo Soldiers visited. There will soon be a Speech Competition and the students and teacher cleared a garbage dump across the street and created a lovely garden with a Pergula obtained with a grant from Lowe's.
