I noticed that some of the previous e-mails discussed overcrowding issues. However, a new school was built down the road, so there are now less than 750 students. Hallways are quiet and there's now plenty of space. I have been pleased with my kids' teachers. The school is challenging, yet caring. Great combination!
Teacher quality is not consistent in this school. While it has many excellent teachers, it also has staff that would be better suited to non childcare careers. It is however a very safe school and focuses on safety and good citizenship.
I have been very impressed by this school. My husband and I are professionals and have felt like we have found a school with private school level involvement of parents yet still is a public school. We have 3 children at this school and have been very impressed and pleased with the school staff who treat our children with individual attention, compassion and strengthen our children's love of academics.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
