The school academic advancement shows in the State scores - you should check the out! The entire building has created a welcoming atmosphere with high expectations. Great school.
This school fails horribly with regard to real academics. We learned how bad it was when we moved and entered a different school district where she was far, far behind. Despite being in the second grade, our daughter had nowhere near the mastery of some of the basics surrounding reading and writing that other children in her new school had. She essentially was still counting on her fingers whereas other students already had mastered some of the basics of single digit addition. Be sure to do your own supplemental work with your child if you want them to be on par with other kids their age.
This school has been excellent in so many ways. The staff, the teachers, the principal. Bully-free, unlike other school districts. They really 'get it' with a lunch hour solution that really works. The 'all assignments in' incentive program works well where students get recognition. Finally in a safe environment, our child is catching up in math and excelling with 'free writing.' Staff were innovative and helpful locating community resources. Teachers promote parental involvement successfully on a variety of levels. 'Students Bill of Rights,' 'Hands are not for hurting,' 'If you're a bully...,' 'If you're a victim...,' signs posted throughout the building. A model for others to consider.
This is an awesome school! This year will be my childrens second year going there. The school is very family orientated, and very much about parent teacher communication. I am very proud to have my children going to this wonderful school!
