I think this school is moving in the right direction. The positives are the warm welcoming environment, the admistration, and most teachers. The negative is the huge lack of parental support (not including myself) some of the student behavior which goes back to parental support.

This school is horrible. My son has been here for part of 5th grade and beginning of 6th grade to date. I am very unhappy and dissatisifed. Personally, I would recommend not sending your child here.

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.
