This school is good, however the class sizes are too big. The student/ teacher ratio is on average 26 students per class. It seems like the teachers are never in their classrooms teaching. They are always getting subs to go to meetings and/or being taught by student teachers.
I would have given this school at higher rating but we have run into a few problems this past year with the principal that I just can't bring myself to a higher rating. He stands behind the teachers, which is a good thing...but when they're wrong, should make his own decisions. The teachers have always been friendly as well as office staff. They have a lot of students who need additional help and because of that, feel like they don't spend time challenging the brighter children. Lots of parent involvement and contests/asseblies which we liked. Too much fundraising... A nice little school if you want a safe environment with just OK academic options.
It's a Great School, with a strong principal and council, and good academics, it should have a better rating.
