I believe that the teachers in this particular school teach effectively. They are knowledgable as well as caring. I have never experience a principle so caring, protective and serious about our children. Please know that this is the type of evidence is being shown to me everyday for 4 years.

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.
