If your children are not wealthy, white and well behaved STAY AWAY! Principal McGillis is abrasive, unkind to the point of cruelty and rules instead of runs what was once a wonderful school. Don't do this to your children.
I would describe this school as being an all rounder, with great teachers willing to go the extra mile to assist students and parents. PTA meetings are fantastic and get everyone involved in extra curricular activities. In a short time I have seen my son flourish academically in English, maths and science. The teaching environment is clean and friendly and the Principal is fab, always present and willing to help. The school has won so many awards, no surprise off course given the high standards...
Lindamood Bell reading program has been a real blessing for my child. His reading has soared through his active participation. The teachers really care about the children and even the office staff is wonderfully courteous and warm. The new school building will make this great school even nicer. Top notch principal, always visible to parents and willing to 'get it done'!
