Develops empathy: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · September 28, 2015
Bullying is not tolerated. Also, one teacher created a Civil Rights awareness event last year that helped a lot of students understand the importance of a society that cares for the least among us.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · September 28, 2015
Last year they developed a behavior policy that they posted all around the school and put into words that kids can understand. They made a contract with the kids. It was a good way to help the kids learn responsibility.

A great small school. Very good teachers and staff. Lots of after school programs. I've had kids at all grade levels here over the last three years, and it's been consistently high quality.

I have to say, the test scores tell the real story. The scores are good, the teachers are great, and we are very happy with the school. I agree, if you have concerns, take them to the Governance Board!
