This school as really supported my son. He was in second grade and his teacher spent time with him after school and also helped him to pick appropriate books to read.

My wife teaches here and my youngest son attends this school. After school activities would be great - but there's no money for them. The school has arranged for YMCA activities after school - but the parents have to pay their child's way.

This school has a very friendly and caring environment. The principal is always visible before and after school. She seems to know most of the children by name.

Not satisfied. I found that class size for the 2nd grade level was too large. Found no aggressiveness on behalf of the teacher and class constantly had a substitute. Testing scores too low. I felt that my child was not being challenged at all.
