From what I know is the school needs a head lice clean up, my grand children has had it 4 times this year! Have talked to exterminator and was told with carpet, toys, head phones, pillows shared... it will create sharing head lice. From one to another SOMETHING needs to be done, why not ban together and have an Exterminator come in and treat from time to time, is the children not worth keeping safe when it can be done?

I have never met a more caring group of teachers and staff as I have with this school. When your in a room with them you can see and feel the love and passion each individual takes in their job. I do not have a child attending this school, but I visited this week, and can honestly say I would feel confident is sending my child to learn and grow with any of the staff.

We have been very pleased since the change in principal (Mr. Berry is very good, we were quite unhappy with Ms. Pendleton). Our son feels confident and comfortable learing and it's a school where most of the teachers actually seem to care! Our son needed some additional attention in reading (as he entered second grade) In fact, a school rated much higher on this site had recommended him to be retained in first grade, but refused to allow him to attend summer school for fear he would be too far ahead for first grade if he was retained and went to summer school (we scratched our heads too!!). Anyway, we refused to allow our son to be retained and the second grade staff (GBES) developed a plan for him and he is now reading above grade level, and passed all of his 3rd grade SOL's. Hats off to the staff!
