My daughter started in this school last year and she loves it. Her first grade teacher Mrs. Hirzel, is one of the best teachers I have ever seen. Responsible, sweet, fair and goes beyond to help her students learn. She is so committed to the school that even though she retired last year, she volunteers this year and comes each week to help out. And most of its teachers are good teachers, the staff is always working hard to do activities for the kids. Security is not a problem here, never seen anything out of order. Families are more integrated to the school that in other schools in the same district. Staff and families work hard to move school from effective grade to excellent . Only concern, district cut funds on school and they don't have a nurse, art,music,gym and media class were also cut from budget. Hope the city invest all the $$$ the casino is paying in taxes to improve the schools. Overall I recommend this school.
