Posted October 28, 2008

I have been extremely pleased with this school. The positve behavior support is great with a great prinicipal who sets a great tone overall. She was promoted to superintendent for elementary schools and replaced herself with another great principal! My child is TAG and has been getting his needs met here while I see that they also provide great support for kids who need a little extra help. The music programs is great as well as the P.E. and they do their best to have art thread throughout. I would recommend this school!

I have absolutely loved the time my daughter has spent at this school. Some of the district's best, brightest and most creative teachers are here. The music program is outstanding, the SUN afterschool activities program is wonderful and the use of technology in the curriculum is fabulous. I so appreciated and supported the teachers here, i sought and obtained a variance for my child to attend here (instead of her home school) for the past 3 years. Parent/office communication could use a bit of improvement.
