The parent involvement was outstanding this year, tons of volunteers on field trips, on the playground, and helping out the teachers with making copies, working on fundraisers, PTO meetings have a great group of those teachers and Parents coming. The curriculum was not being taught to all the students, send it home if undone at school, if a child doesn't participate in P.E. at school please assign exercises they can do at home to make up the grade. Don't fail our children because you can't get them to learn at your school, Give our children the chance to show you they can do the tasks on their terms not just yours. I know there are some new faces this year in the staff but please don't make this a rookie mistake not keeping communication and parent involvement open, this is a public school open to public involvement to better our children's education, use us parents as much as you can we want to see our children succeed.

I moved here from a much larger area. This school is a joke, and not even a funny one. The staff is incredibly unprofessional, and the curriculum is 2 years behind national standards. The teachers have called my children insulting names, sent them home on the wrong bus, and cancelled conferences without notice. We also got zero help from them regarding a 14 year old bullying my 9 year old. I am removing my children from the school in favor of home based instruction.

We may havae a small school, but it is a great school. The school encourages parents to be involved in the education of their children. We have a great after school program for our kids to attend which benefits both kids and parents. My children love their school.

This school has been a wonderful experience for my child and with the after schhol program it helps parent out with our childrens needs for supervision, help with home work and activities to keep them off the street and out of trouble. Thank you for providing us with the needed help to keep our children safe and under the watchful eye of adults. I would like to see more parents involved in their children's education and show more concern for the schools wonderful efforts in the way the teachers try to reach out to the children and show more support for these efforts.

Class sizes are small, teachers are good. There is no extracurricular activities, in elementary level. School manages to keep parent involvement low.
