The school's atmosphere is very pleasant; non-chaotic, organized, staff is very polite. Teahcers are great and very caring about students' progress. Dismissal runs smooth with out and confusion. This school deserves additional 5-star reviews!

This school is way below average. The teachers are great, but the principals won't give them the tools they need to bring each child up to TN's par.
