I might be being a little generous here, but having our third kid go through this school, it has gotten better. Kids bounce between three different teachers throughout the day. Historically we've had one outstanding teacher, one okay teacher and one I didn't really care for. Generally not bad though. The big problem here is that all the kids around town merge here at 5th grade and it takes a year or so to weed out the bad apples which is more a function of the people in this town than the elementary schools. The school is in the process of moving to IPads and although there have been some hiccups with this, it should be better off in the long run and keep things more current. Since test scores are so important, it seems like they spend too much time prepping for tests-especially since you have to deal with the kids that are behind and have issues at home that prevent them from being the citizen and student they should be. Communication with parents is not the best-this is district-wide, but this school is the worst by far. This school does have one good thing going for and that is the music program. It by itself deserves 5 stars.

Kids don't get help as needed by the teachers. Not enough books for all kids either.
