Pros: Amazing teachers who go above and beyond. Energetic and extremely involved principal who makes time to address parents concerns. Small school atmosphere where staff are familiar with all the students and the students know each other well. Small-ish class sizes - my child's classroom has 20 students. Cons: Safety is a concern as violent behaviors are an issue. Teachers, aides (and other students) are repeatedly physically attacked. Frequent disruptions are common. Overall there appear to be some serious behavior problems that this school is not equipped to handle. There is a very limited special education resources (one part-time teacher for all of 4k-2nd grade). Also, long bus rides (an hour each way for mine) are not ideal.

Dedicated teachers who are active outside of the school day in school events. Small class sizes (about 16 kids per class). Fantastic, caring, fun principal who lives in the community. LOTS of extra help for kids who need it (reading specialists, math interventionists, aides). Kids get art, PE, music, and guidance weekly and some classes also teach beginning spanish. Excellent 4K program with busing right to your doorstep. Great PTO.

Faculty members know every student by name. They are all wanting to nurture, guide & challenge each child. Seems to be a high percentage of eager-to-learn (bright) students. Teachers are high-energy and seem to enjoy teaching. Although not very diverse, and no Spanish-immersion options.

Safe, calm atmosphere in middle/high school. Teachers go above what's expected to challenge and inspire kids. Community made up of respectful, committed families. Bus rides are long for most of the kids, which I don't like.

Amazing teachers and staff. Large, fun classrooms. Only 16 students in my daughter's class this year with a teacher and assistant. Last year, only 17 students.
