My son has been going to this school for 3 years. He started their Pre-k program at 3 years old and was accelerated from Kindergarten into the 1st grade this year. The teachers are very invested in the success of their students. It's very easy to stay involved as a parent. The principal and vice principals also work very closely with the parents and teachers to ensure success. I really can't say enough good things about this school and will miss it terribly when the military moves us away.

The principal and staff are wonderful. Can't say enough about the small community feel that you have here. Very caring environment.

This school is horrible at working with children who need a little extra. If you have a child who is ADHD, a genius, or anything else other than a cookie cutter kid, this school is NOT for you. The teachers and administration have no respect for the kids. They talk to them like they are idiots and expect the students to behave like adults. I am thoroughly disgusted with this school. There is SO much to say about this aweful school, PLEASE email me with any question. If you have a wonderful child who doesn't have any issues, than this school may work well for you. However, if your child's attitude changes due to deployed parent or whatever the case, be prepared for a long, long battle.

My son transferred to this school in the middle of last year which is a very hard transition to make. They worked with him to get him integrated quickly and are always ready to help with any concerns a parent might have or a student. This is a school with staff that obviously loves their jobs and their children.

The first day of school my preschool son and I had a hard time as he cried and the Principal noticed I was having trouble leaving him crying. He stop to tell me that I can all anytime to check on him and that they will be honest about what is going on. I liked that he cared what we were going through. I like being able to help out the teachers also when they need it. They are very appreciative. Also my daughter has speech and reading problems and the teacher would put extra time time to help her along with the speech therapist to help boost her reading and speech skills. The staff and teachers there are very nice.

My son is a good student but it is difficult in the beginning of the school year for him to get adjusted to going back to school. The staff worked with us until he was comfortable going by himself.

Glad that my daughter finally left this school.There are a few Teachers that do care but most of them do not. I found that most staff there is unfriendly and dont like to put the extra work in to help a student.

My daughter went to this school for a short time. I have to say I was not at all impressed with it. My daughter is an A-B student. When she went to this school she had no desire to continue her good work. She would get good grades on her tests but when it was report card time her grades wern't so good. I brought this to the attention of the school and they said they would look into it but never did. She had 1 really good teacher, who did care about his students and she got the bestgrade in class.
