Unorganized and incompetent on all levels. Do not send your child to this school. There is no communication, complete apathy, and management is nonexistent. Just look at the decline in test scores, if you don't want to take my words.

A serious decline in this school since the new principal has taken over. My child's teacher failed to give out handouts in a timely manner. This may have been because the handouts were given to her late. Whatever the reason there is a total disconnection between how a real school should operate. The school seems to expect the kids to notify their parents of last minute changes. The new principal seems to care more about saving face than making a difference. Some teachers do not "believe in homework," but my question is, how does the classwork get reinforced? The whole leadership system has declined and lacks good structure.

We love this school. The teachers are great--very warm caring, bright, flexible, creative, hard-working. Lots of individual attention and emails home if something is not going well. An anti-bullying culture of sweet kids. A principal who was voted best principal in western NC last year. Our son is finishing 3rd grade, and we have had very good teachers each year. He is a minimalist with respect to homework (does what he has to to get by); yet he has done very well on state standardized tests. The campus is pretty and wooded. Parents can be as involved as they want to be. There is always a good group of parents in PTA.

Great class sizes and wonderful teachers. The new principal (Marcia Perry) even arranged for the students to get free or for donation year books last year!
