The Principal and Vice Principal are outstanding when it comes to care for the kids. Often, as a means to encourage the importance of reading, kids are invited to visit the principal and read with/to her. The Vice Principal takes time to check on classrooms and visit with kids to make sure things are running smoothly. In my school days, you were in trouble if they sent you to see the principal. Here they do an excellent job of creating an inviting environment while still maintaining that they are in charge. They treat all the kids with the care, attention, and enthusiasm at accomplishments as if they were their own. I'm not sure if I am allowed to name names, but to the two ladies who run this school, Thank you for all that you do for the kids. You two go above and beyond and as a parent I very much appreciate that.

Amount of homework: Just right

The school has, what I feel, reasonable homework. Enough to help the kids learn, not too much as to overwhelm or set them up to fail. Plenty of time to allot for an after school activity and work completion.

Having had a child attend this school from mid kindergarten on through the final grade (4) I feel I am in a great position to give a review. Teachers: Top Notch. While the actual school curriculum is limited legally by state mandates (meaning everyone is equal and children who excel in learning capabilities will not be given advanced work outside of those regulations) the teachers themselves are all very good at their jobs. All seem highly competent, have a true enthusiasm for working with children from all sorts of backgrounds, have patience, and truly want the best from their students. The feedback from teacher to parent is very open. Be it notes or other communication, they are quite willing, within reason, to work with parents on a child's needs. Discipline: The teachers and admin staff can and will be firm when it comes to if discipline is required, using a positive reinforcement method and discussions with the child on appropriate behavioral alternatives. Bullying is not tolerated, is quickly addressed, and I've found that most cases of bullying (which stems naturally from children) does not ever progress to a level where self esteem is being consequently damaged. All parties needs are met, be it the bully or the person being bullied. The school has counselors on staff who work with kids, or provide the resources to get children extra help outside of school if that is required. Special Needs: My child has ADD/ADHD, and the school and staff are wonderful with helping kids with this to learn methods for self control. This is not to mean they are more lenient with expectations, but they do understand what ADHD is and help kids work through it. My Pre-K child is autistic, and again the staff is excellent in working with these kids. The kids themselves: I've seen many kids at this school through the years, older and younger, and the behavior is always consistent. The kids who go here are HAPPY and it shows. I've never seen a teacher or staff member walk through the hallways without many cheerful shouts of "Hello Mr./Ms __) Kids run up and hug them at Parent teacher conference night. All the kids behave respectably, while still being kids. The education received here might be pretty standard, but all in all, the confidence and happiness the kids attain are incredibly useful too. More schools should be like this one.
