Up and coming school. Students, staff, and Administration are shooting for the stars. Lots of love and support shown by both Administration and staff towards all students, parents, and community. Everyone is working with intentionality to advance the school and strike a balance with all the wonderful programs.


Posted January 6, 2011

The principal Mrs Carradine is HORRIABLE she is NOT at all a professional or people person. I have come to the school on many occasions and walked the hallway past her and she wont speak at ALL. I like my sons teacher Mrs. K (she is the best), He comes home everyday with things that he has learned.I just feel that the principal needs some more training on how to deal with the public.

This school has a terrific Special Interest Program Coordinator. With all the changes happening at the school, I hope they allow her to build the pprogram up to the high academics that she envisions for all our students.
