We spent 5 years in this older, smaller school (350) with mostly positive results. The principle, (2nd year), made vast improvements in moral & leadership of a changing teaching staff. (many retiring staff/5 years) The staff are devoted, hard working and work in grade teams. A core of dedicated volunteers help in all aspects of the school and welcomed by staff. Music, Library and PE have full-time devoted teachers, art is mostly volunteer. A strong PTC, funds events with a good budget and supports & works closely with the principle. There are 2 autism classrooms, with 17 total classes K-5. Many after school extras, running club, chess club, after school care, play, mad science, little rembrandts, and band, etc. They have a good web site due to a great technology staff member. Literacy Coaches on staff. Only negatives- old school in need of updates.
