I really enjoy the small size school. I like it when I have to pick up my child early, and the staff knows right where to find my child. There is no looking up name lists or room numbers. I know for a fact my child is somebody in the school, not just a number. I believe the teachers give it their all with their students! I do wish there were more choices of sports for the students. I have confidence that my child will not get lost in any system because of the small class sizes. This is a huge comfort zone for a parent. There is always opportunity for parent volunteers, the number one way to stay involved with your childs education!

We have one child in the district, who started kindergarten this year. It's a full day program, so we were expecting the curriculum to be more like first grade. It turned out to be a repeat of his pre-k curriculum. His teacher alerted us to the disparity in the program and our sons ability before I had decided what to do about it, which was very encouraging. The school was responsive to my concerns and re-evaluated our sons academic needs. Together we decided to place him in the first grade, where he is being challanged and engaged at just the right leval. THe administration was open to my input, rather than condescending or defensive. The teachers are a mix of veterans and newbies, all dedicated. Classrooms have computers, there is a good, though not full range of extracurricular activities. The academic needs are well met.
