Great atmosphere within the school. My daughter has attend 2 grades already and we are pleased with the parent teacher communication and teaching ethics. Principle is a great example for the teachers.

This school integration of strudents is beginning to improve, however the state ELA and Math scores have decreased tremendously which is a great concern. The teachers and faculty are very nice and supportive however the faculty is not at all diversed. More upto date curriculm programs need to be implemented. The school is a good school, the great decrease in scores for this schol year need to address like yesterday.

Excellent integration, social development, inclusion. Definitely behind the more rigorous catholic schools, but if you don't want your kid wasting time learning religion or want them to have time to be a kid, this is a pretty good school. Teachers are helpful. Could use parent orientation for each year, so parents know what to expect regarding HW and projects. More PTA involvement needed to make holiday and special events better (ie halloween party, year-end field day)

This is an excellent school with high test scores. The math program is great. But the reading isn't as good.
