This school is truly wonderful. It is a small school that I don't feel like a number at. I know the teachers and the principal and they know me. The school is run top notch, with focus on academics and character. I can't say enough good about how this school and its' staff have really shaped my little boy. He was so shy and afraid of school, and now he loves it, and feels like an important part of his school. The district is excellent, but this particular school is very special. There is tremendous parent involvement and support, and the programs offered outside of school are excellent as well.
Amzing school that truly focuses on the childen. Teachers are well-trained and strive to help their students achieve their goals. The parents are very involved and particpate in many daily classroom activities. The PTO provides many extra activities for students, including playground equipment, nature trails, sledding hills, and family-based events. The principal is very devoted to quality experiences for all children. Compared to other districts I have encountered, there is not comparison as to which is one of the best in the county... and they have the test scores to back it up!
Outstanding programs where children practice respect for others and citizenship as well as academic performance. Children who are capable of advancing are promoted to higher acheivement while remaining with their age group and classes (ie. a 1st grader reading at a third grade level will be grouped with similar 1st and 2nd graders for a period of time each wk - otherwise stay with class). Parents are encouraged to be involved. Need an auditorium for assemblies as the gym is currently used.
