Many good qualities found in other schools. However, unique characteristics stand out as poor or needing improvement. Principal and Vice principal are 'wet behind the ears' and lack good listening skills. Many teachers are great but, many are older and close to retirement. The feeling is that they've 'given up' on teaching or what it once meant to them. Their music program suffers. There is no band or orchestra and the principal Phillips is unsupportive. Previous music teacher left due to her lack of interest, involvement, and support. Parents are not involved in this community like other communities. My child did go to this school for two years and I pulled them out. It is a 'fair' school that needs new administration and new vision.
