One of the best schools I have visited! The school culture is very welcoming. Every morning the principal stands outside to welcome every student. The teachers there spend hours of overtime each week (if you drive by there are cars there around the clock!) planning hands on lessons for the students. I have been very impressed with the focus on academics in a perfectly developmentally appropriate atmosphere! My child is reading 2 grade levels above her current grade, and her test scores are magnificent! Can't beat this awesome bundle in a school!

I am new into the school system (child in K) but I have been involved in the school system for many years. I am disappointed in the school with many aspects, but given the experience this year I think the teachers are wonderful. There are weak links in every school system, but I am lucky that my child had a great teacher. I am just disappointed with lack of parental involvement. This is no reflection on the school, but pretty sad for the children. I just keep wondering where all the fundraising money goes? There are never updates posted, but there are tons of stuff always coming home to raise money. Sure would be nice to know where the money goes?

While many grades have strong teachers, others have definite weak links. Few if any extracurricular activities are offered. PTO has been disbanded, parent participation is limited to classroom parties, fundraising, and AR reading program.

I have a great respect for the Teachers and the Priniciple at this school. They are very dedicated to helping our children learn in a safe enviorment. Parents are encouraged to visit the school and principle at any time. These teachers believe that working together, at school and at home is the way for improved learning. The students have lots of extracurricular activities and enjoy the music, art programs at this school.
