I presently have a child enrolled and love this school. It is very family oriented and encourages parental involvement. I like that there is not too many kids in each class and the town is pretty much built to capacity, so it'll stay that way.

Posted April 14, 2006

I attended this school as a student and recently had the experience of having a student enrolled in this school. Things have not changed much. Parents need to fight for the assistance their children need. Policy guides much of the decision-making, even when it is not what is best for the student. There are teacher who care, and those who are temporary. The difference in attitude is aparant. Change must begin within the administration.

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.
