This is a high quality school with a principal and staff who are wonderful to work with and have the student's best interest at heart. There is a wonderful and creative team that lead PE and the arts. There is a medium level of parental involvement due to the diverse population of students.
School is very good for the average student. Parents of accelerated students will want to look into Kent School Districts Accelerated Learners program. Large population of English-Language-Learners. Principal is involved and truly cares about the students, parents, AND staff.
We transfered our son there in mid Sept from Meadow Ridge. The staff really loves what they do and are happy to go to work each day. The 7 virtures that they instill on the students I feel are a great idea and it is working to make the kids aware of what they do at all times. The bullying on the playground is the only concern I have had there so far. The play area is so large it seems very hard to patrol all of it with their staff. You can only do so much with what you have. We really enjoy it and my son gets to have our daughter's 2nd grade teacher and she is wonderful!
