This school is great. They recently started 3rd through 5th, whereas before it was only 4th -5th. This move was because one of the elementary schools had to shut down due to lack of budget to keep up with the old structure, however the school expanded to accommodate 3rd grd coming in. The only problem I have with that is before there was 22-23 students per class, now you have 28-30. This is a lot, but the teachers handle them so well. They have proven to come from extensive experience and they each have an area of expertise. My daughters class "switch" teachers where two classrooms and teachers interact and switch up groups of kids from both classes, and focus on subjects. One teacher specializes in math/science and the other in English and social studies. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone moving to the area. Also they have other activities that include: Band, Chorus, Creative Arts, Football, Cheer and before and intramural which includes but not limited to soccer, mat ball, wizard, basketball. Great social atmosphere, no bullying (I speak with my child regularly about that) and a good community, thus far.
Outstanding school! I have a 5th grader who has excelled and loves her teachers. As a product of private schools, I was a bit leary of sending my daughter to a public school but have been overwhelmed at the level of teacher professionalism, quality and concern for students.
