This school has a family type atmosphere to it. The teachers are involved in providing positive parent-teacher relationships in order to provide a better quality atmosphere of learning for each child. There are several activities throughout the school year that provide parents with oppertunities to be a part of thier child's learning atmosphere. This is a small school that truly cares about its students as well as each family. My children have really enjoyed being a part of this school.

This school has well trained teachers but lacks structural integrity. The bathrooms are outdated and the gym's ceiling is hanging in pieces,even though the main offices have been totally remodeled. I also feel that the buses should not have stereos in them. It hampers the driver's ability to control the safety of the children.

I feel that the school needs updates. Some of the classrooms were done by the teachers themselves.
