Excellent teachers, supportive administration and a great pta that welcomes parents and encourages volunteers. Of course there's always a few sour grapes but the great people out way the naysayers. There is a strong focus on academics, updated technology , and there have been many capital improvements. Recently went yo full day kindergarten which is a huge plus. Also has part time pre k.

The homework seems to be relevant and doable for my children. Thank God no more ridiculous dioramas/ projects that most of the parents ended up doing.

Although a small number of vocal parents would gave you think otherwise, this district has done a great job of raising the bar and implementing new curriculum with high standards. Overall, the teachers are well prepared and do and excellent job. There are many resources for parents available.

The school has an all inclusive belief where they celebrate differences and teaches empathy and compassion for others. This year there is a district unity day sponsored by the pta which focuses on this.

John Lewis Childs school was a great environment for any child to learn in. I still keep in touch with a couple of teachers, they provided a wonderful learning environment. It has a small town feel, parents of school children need to work with the administration to come to a mutual agreement about the curriculum and extra curricular activities that are provided.
