The school has an excellent administration, every teacher and administration member knows their kids, teachers are familiar with students and its like a great community, I love the school and the values that my daughter learn everyday there

My daughter is also 3rd generation in this school. The school community is one where parents are involved and kids don't fall through the cracks. There's been too much turnover with great teachers and principals leaving - but because parents care and are involved, it's still the best place around for your kids to get a great education in a safe and caring environment.

My daughter is 3rd generation at this school. The child study team came in-house in Fall 2003 and has received excellent support in terms of staffing. The sense of community and active parent population makes it a special place. Not without problems - this year has been a bit rough (inexperienced new principal, and teacher turnover high b/c of maternity leaves) - but still an exceptional place for our kids to be educated.

The biggest problem this school has at the moment is that they outsource the child study team. This is completely unacceptable as these children do not need a revolving door of 'professionals'.
