This school is truly wonderful. The staff is engaging, caring, and responsive to children's needs. There are many family-centered activities as well. The school encourages family involvement, and the teachers do a wonderful job communicating with parents. They take the time to help children who are struggling. I always know what is going on with my children and the school. They also focus on being healthy. The school also focuses on character-building, respect, and compassion. The teachers always find a way to make learning fun.
This school has a great staff. The teachers are so caring and engaged. The administration stresses the importance of character and leadership among all students. There are always a great many family-focused activities designed to build community between students, teachers and parents. It's a great, great school.
Seems like a cattle drive at times as far as teaching. The principal doesn't embrace diversity and there is far too much concentration on extra curricular activities that have nothing to do with learning. Students suffer from not learning or mastering the lessons they need to succeed on the mandated STAR tests. It would be nice if the school would spend more time educating and less time trying to entertain our children.
Great school and great staff. Teachers really care about the kids learning the right things. They have incorporated 'Rachel's Challenge' --random acts of kindness and holds kids accountable for their actions. Love it here and my son will attend in the fall!
