My child attended this school for 5 years. Things seemed to be going pretty well until 4th grade. After completing 3rd grade successfully, and getting excellent grades in 4th, we were told that he wasn't capable of learning beyond a 2nd grade level. We switched schools within the district and he went into general education. Now, in mid 7th with full integration, he is on the merit roll. He has learned to eat with non disabled peers in the school cafeteria and his transition plan includes 4 year college. I would be very leery of sending a child with disabilities to this school and if we could do it over we would have removed him long before we did. I tried for years to volunteer and become active with PTO and couldn't get a call back. Principals do not seem to stay long. In our experience the teaching staff is hit or miss. Only one of the gen ed teachers my son had seemed to care to learn about autism... others, even those who signed his IEP didn't seem to know how to read one or how to fulfill their obligations in regard to the IEP. I do not recommend this school for students with special education needs.

This elementary is a good school for good students. Have heard from parents of slower kids, that they do not get enough attention. Good facility, good music, good art, some great teachers. Some combined classes.
