This is the only school district we have found that offers a class for Native American students. My daughter loved being able to learn about her culture and make friendships with other Native American children. She has made life long friends. She is now moving on to the High School and will be enrolled in their program.

This school doesn't respect racial diversity. My child was harassed by the teachers from day one. If your low income or minority you will be harassed.

I am a student at this school and I really like it. There is a lot of parent involvement in this school and most of the teachers are great. This school has also improved greatly over the past couple years in displining students, the school has little to no tolorence of unacceptable behavior and that makes it a really safe learning enviornment!
