Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · September 17, 2016
We couldn't be happier. The experience we have had and continue to have with each teacher throughout the past three years has been nothing but positive! They reach our son in a way that teachers before hadn't.

Amount of homework: Agree
Submitted by a parent · September 17, 2016

Develops character: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · September 17, 2016
The students get social skills lessons along with the rest of the curriculum that help to develop these traits in our kids.
