I have had my grandchildren in this school for over 15 years.Our youngest is now in 4th grade, I have raised or helped 20 children and attended many PTA or PTO meeting and dealt with many teachers and principals. This school has the best rapport between parents and teachers that I have ever seen. The staff is willing to work with a parent on many levels, behavior, deslexia, whatever. There are more parent volunteers in this one school than I have ever seen. They work hard to make our school the best. The PTO has several fund raisers a year and pay for many items, supplies, and field trips for the children. The profits from the Halloween festival are divided among the teachers for additional supplies during the year. I wish students could devote more time to art and music but at least they keep a good program going.

We love this school, teachers and staff are very upbeat and encouraging to the students. They have great extra curricular activities for the kids to be involved in outstanding place to put your child.

Great school for children who are not academically challenged in any way. Definetly need more extracurricular activities and summer programs.
