Students in grades Pre-K through 6 are allowed recess and/or free time daily, PE daily, and many times to exercise and move around. Classes rotate and students mix. Students only move their clips or are disciplined when misbehavior occurs. Every elementary school in the United States has room for improvement. A Really Great School where students learn and have fun!

good school but they do not allow recess and do not have pe everyday and expect children to sit in their seats for the entire school period even in 1st grade. When this does not happen they move the childs clip resulting in low self esteem for standing and moving at 6 years of age. Their classroom disciple has room for improvement reguarding this issue.
