Really like this school. Teachers are wonderful. Community is exceptionally welcoming. However, the focus on testing is overpowering. True learning is bypassed for better testing scores. After testing in April it seems the rest of the school year is wasted.
My son attends currently this school and he really likes it. I think that the parent-teacher communication is very useful and unlike most schools, you can see your child's home teacher whenever you feel like it. We just moved from a different State and my biggest concern was 'what if my child won't like it' but thanks to the wonderful staff and teachers, we did not feel new here at all. I would highly recommend this school for its academics, hard working teachers and other staff.
