School doesn't have a broad capability for handling students either below or above what is considered grade level, of a child in any grade. It's more of a "cookie cutter" school in the sense that it can only handle one type/level of children. School seems to be slightly behind in curriculum as when I moved here from another location in NY the kids had to backtrack.
This school cares about its students. It has many educators willing to give students extra attention. Learning basic subjects are learned along with art and music.
Positives: Caring teachers, beautifully kept facility, great environment. Negatives: Weak principal, large class sizes in a couple of the grades.
We need more teachers for our 2nd graders and fifth graders. There are too many kids in one classroom.
