I believe the teachers and curriculum are good but the administration is horrible. Very often you are given fliers for events that are taking place the next day. This gives two working parents no time to plan for the event and the children miss out. New Principal is often (as described by my children) mean to kids. We have written letters to the school and the board of ed to no avail. We will be leaving this school district soon. I thank all the teachers for helping our children grow throughout the years they attended.
My two children attend this school. This is a great elementary school! Curriculum is standard, but all the teachers strive to present new material beyond what's required. Parent-teacher association is very active and kids benefit from this continually in the form of field trips, special activities withing the school, etc. Families are very diverse and representative of the surrounding neighborhood. There is a park next to the school and the area where it is located is completely residential. My children are both very happy to belong to School 3.
The teaching staff is very responsive to individual student's needs. Music programs are good and they are working on implementing alternative exercise programs , such as yoga. The level of parent involvement is very high
