the teachers here are excellent, they encourage your children to learn and provide an atmosphere of learning. i think the principal could use a class on social skills and the office staff needs to learn how to communicate with the parents. Overall I think the school is wonderful and enjoy sending my children there.

Teachers are of the highest caliber. Students are challenged to always do their best. This school has been rated EXEMPLARY thanks to the teachers, parents and administration working together as a team.

Kids are not a priority at this school. Most teachers like to humiliate kids, calling them names, talking to the principal doesn't do you any good. They need to work on their people skills.


Posted August 6, 2006

This schools success is a result of the principal raising the bar on teacher expectations, It appears that teachers are very involved in students learning goals. The administration is very visible and active. Teachers are challenged to upgrade their computer skills to provide more information to parents. The schoolgrounds seem to be well controlled thus reducing the general parent safety concerns. There does appear to be a high turnover rate of teachers. It appears to be a result of promotion opportunities.
