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.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
