This is the best school I have been associated with. The teachers and staff are very friendly, they care about all of the kids and watch out for them. They have Character Counts which is great for the kids. The facilities are wonderful and the students have many opportunities that are not available in neighboring schools. I haven't seen anything negative in this school system.

Teachers are very friendly and really seem to love the kids. They have incentive programs such as Character Counts. Everyone at the school really watches out for all the students.

The school is beautiful and has many nice things like a great library and computer lab. My children have all had different teachers and there is quite a bit of inconsistency between what is taught between teachers at the same grade level. There seems to be a lack of leadership and a tolerance of disrespect not only between teachers but by students. This seems to be the school that kids with discipline issues and special needs opt in. The school is growing by leaps and bounds. By 5th grade the students move to what they call the upper elementary school, which is really the Middle School. Once again the resources available are great but the teacher skill and leadership is lacking. Academically, I felt that they were a year behind a neighboring state's school system in all areas except reading.
