We love this school. The teachers, principal, and staff are very dedicated to making the school great. The kids are taught traditional subjects and the importance of respect, kindness, honesty and trying your best. Special events like the fall festival, fall and spring concerts, art show, and movie nights are fun for kids and adults and increase school pride.

These concepts are emphasized in the school's pledge, in activities and signs throughout the building.

I am NOT pleased with the new female principal. She is rood, un profetional, and does not know how to interact with children. Excpetiallly hyper active children....move over lady let someone else try. Anyone would be better at it then! Mrs.cluck on the other band is amazing

Most of the teachers work hard to teach our children. Some of the teachers let the bully's, bully and blame the victims. Not a fan of the new princial. She SEEMS under qualified and overwhelmed. Also very unprofessional and self righteous.

So far I have only been pleased with the academic programs. As a parent I have always wanted to be involved with my childs school. This school does not make you feel welcome at all! It makes me feel sad to be shut out of programs, the classroom and the school itself. I am glad to hear of the principals retirement. When schools, families, and the community work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.

The teachers and support staff really know and care about their children. They are very available to you for concerns big and small. I especially like that they maintain discipline with personal accountability. They class sizes are small, and it's a great neighboorhood school with a sense of community.
