we are having some challenges with this school. it seems there is a great deal of attention paid to the standards, and not much attention paid to enriching kids to need more stimulation/challenges. The principal is not very forthcoming with parents - there was a recent decision that parents would no longer be allowed to send in treats for a child's birthday celebration - with no reporting on WHY that decision was made. several months later, in a newsletter, there was mention of prevalent allergies and fairness to parents who can't afford to buy something (because treats had to be store bought). the PTO means well, there are a few involved parents, but not many. the meetings are always in the evening and not always convenient for working parents. they are providing for some extra activities for the kids on fridays occassionally. This seems to be an average school, which seems to support their students in an average fashion. I agree with an earlier comment that teachers are moved around between grades and may not be best equipped to support students where they are placed.

I wish my child were going to a different district. It is difficult to get all the same information as a parent in the district when you live outside of it, I feel the principal doesn't do a great job at keeping parents informed or she passes things off and gives an unsatisfactory answer about issues, I feel that some teachers may be a bit biased, some were saying anything just to give an answer to questions, however there were a couple of teachers that were wonderful, I feel the district needs more activities, sports, better ways of communicating.

Coming from Palmyra Macedon with a child with learning disabilities I am very happy with my sons progress now. I have children in both schools and it doesn't even compare to the other area schools.

So far my views of this school are mixed. Academic quality varies greatly from teacher to teacher. Many problems are dealt with by moving the teacher from grade to grade. A select group of parents are very involved but a large number are not.

The teachers here are satisfactory up until about fourth or fifth grade. then, the teachers, who have the responsibility to teach the students things they will need to know in middle and high schools, don't do a very good j0b of preparing them for the rest of school.
