My kid finished kindergarten, and I cannot say enough good things about this school. Excellent class size, 18 kids with 2 teachers, super loving and warm teachers, great community, everyone knows everyone. They have a staff member dedicated for family and community liaison. Excellent education, a lot better than the 5/10 great schools rating tells you. My kid learned Spanish, excelled at math, reading and writing, made friends, was in a safe and very well run environment this past year. Very clean, calm, well-organized, when you walk through you don't hear teachers yelling and yet it is very well disciplined. The teachers and administration are very responsive to parents, i feel valued and respected here at this school, as does my kid. Better value than some of the private schools in the area! The after school program at the school 3-6 pm is wonderful for working parents, very well run and affordable. They organize parenting workshops, among other events. They have a very healthy school menu, e.g. no chicken nuggets. There's a special every day: music, art, phys ed alternating every three days plus library time. They do recess before lunch:proven to improve student behavior+health.
