This is a great school. Academic program is excellent, students are encouraged to do their best. Great field trips, lots of afterschool activities, very good teachers. Ability to view all grades and homework on-line is a life-saver for the parents.

This is a small school. Overall, the school does really well on standarized tests, but lack on assistance students in being social interact, for example I do not see many activities after school where parents and community will shared, I feel lost and the connection of family,community is not there.

Although the school as a whole does very well on standardzed tests, the quality of the faculty and the administrative staff varies. It's a relatively small school, so you have to be careful of which teacher is teaching your children. The anti-bullying program is a joke, so the kids are on their own when dealing with bullies. The administration does not seem to be very interested in improving the school, or in requiring underperforming teachers to do better, so long as the standardized test results are maintained. Unlike Pine Road Elementary, my kids do not enjoy Murrary Ave; they endure it.
