I believe we could use more sport activites for the young ones to be involved in. The quality of academic programs is wonderful. I would love to see the parent involvement go up, but it is good. Hope this is a great year for all.

This school is very uneducated. The teachers might have been working there for years but it's only because of comfort. Not for the love of education. Parents are not involved at all. My son attended k-3 here, and never had homework once! Parent teacher conferences are simply :'he's doing great' and you hadn't even givin them your childs name yet. I strongly advise you not to let your child attend this school, if you want him or her to learn anything. oh! and worst of all 2nd and 3rd graders share a class because they don't have enough teachers or space!
