The teachers are mostly okay. However there's that one teacher that pushes wayy to hard. She expects students to ace tests and quizzes when she herself is not doing her job correctly in accually teaching the students and not just rushing through topics to just get her job barely done. Unlike other teachers this one does no effort what so ever at helping the students improve. Most teachers are very good but this one I am not at all impressied with.

This is a nice small school. The teachers that my children have had since early intervention and through first grade have all been excellent and supportive. As a parent of children with special needs I have found the child study team to be cooperative and supportive also.

2 kids here. Early intervention program has been very supportive. Fairly small class size 10-13. Getting a good teacher here seems hit or miss. Having a music program and art program is a plus I think. Hopefully the new principal will help. The parents here seem pretty involved.

My child constantly tells me how there is two gossipy, mean teachers. One of them rolls her eyes when a student is having trouble with a problem or is trying to figure out something. The other teacher is terrible. I felt so bad for these children who went through this. The other teacher takes the child out into the hallway and screams as loud as she possibly can in their face, getting some of her spit on their face as well. Why are these people even teachers? I can't wait to move from this school.

Just moved into the area mid year. Not at all impressed. High student to teacher ratio and less than helpful communications. Looking at moving again.

Small school with art, music, GT, and other extra-curricular programs. Parents are all very involved and administration knows each family pretty well. Overall a good atmosphere.

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.
