I have seen over the last year how the students at this school get involved in their community. This school develops leaders!

This school has numerous extra-curricular enrichment programs, a Franklin Covey Leader in Me program, and has an awesome administration and faculty who promote a rigorous curriculum and personal student growth.

Fifth grade teachers, AIG, Mr. Jones, Mrs. Rice and Mr. House go the extra mile to provide a safe and enriching educational environment.

I am truly sure that 90% of the schools teachers truly do care and I'm happy that the other parents that commented their children got those teachers. fifth-grade experience the guidance counselor is wonderful and has no tolerance for bullying or gossip. But the sixth grade experience has been atrocious..Teachers that are/were extremely rude and impatient with almost all of their children and have belittled their intelligence ;also the bullying in the gossip is not well-managed..my child has came home too many times crying repeatedly over such instances..there are just too many students for this school!Many of the teachers are overworked and the classrooms too big(not their fault by any means, I can appreciate that there are students that act horribly, but it spills over to the innocent ones)Dr. Gibbs is an amazing principle on the other hand, but cannot obviously watch all of her staff and watch over them to see who is being exceptional teachers and which ones are not.. If your child must go to the school I would research the teachers thoroughly and make sure that your child gets a pair of the good teachers and have tough skin,otherwise they're going to have a miserable year!!
