I have a granddaughter who is in the fifth grade in this school. I am very proud of this school especially this year because they won the National Blue Ribbon Award. Not only for winning this award, but also for the dedication, love and support from not only all the teachers but from the parents.

This schools is average, Students are not encouraged to their best. There are very little extra-curricular activites. Teachers does not give much efforts to increase the state tests score. Students are better served at nearby schools.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
