Not impressed with this school... The teachers seem to not care about doing their job & the Staff is rude when you call or go up there...
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 26, 2010

I rate our school 5 stars because the teacher, staff, and parents all seem to me to be completely involved in the students lives. When you have that kind of dedication to each and every student then you know your child is getting the education they need.

K - 5 grades are really good. I would score them an 8, but 6-8 grade I would score them an 3.

I am very proud of our school. I think the teachers are great. So far our experience has been nothing but positive.

I think this is the best school in Tennessee because the teachers take time with the children & talk to the parent. The school is the safety I have seen.
