I do not have a child that goes to this school. I am from Texas but my hisband traveled up there to do sandy relief for work to build a temp school he was gone about a month. Anyway he enjoyed everyone from this school bored.... The community was great!! He said its one of the best jobs he's done. Being out side a big city he was shocked how right nit the town was.

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.
