Posted April 7, 2011

Overall this school has been a very good experience for my 4th grade daughter. Communication with her teachers and the Principal, Mrs. Malone is excellent. For the most part, teacher (with the exception of 1 or 2) and staff morale is wonderful and upbeat which gets my daughter to enjoy going to school. They have done a great job at figuring out what her educational needs are and focusing on them. On the down side, there are several children that are disruptive to the overall environment and waste valuable time for others. Outbursts, rowdiness and taking of personal property is commonplace. This is a huge issue and needs to be addressed. Otherwise, a perfect atmosphere for this age group. The staff has a genuine love for the students and that is rare in public school.
