My son is in first grade this year. We have had the best experience this year and last! Both his teachers have been amazing. Our new principal this year is very nice and personable and working hard for our school. We could not be happier.

Ms. Tinnerset is the most amazing, caring kindergarten teacher. When you send your little one to kindergarten, you can rest assured he or she will learn so much and enjoy doing so.

The faculty and administration and very interactive with the parents. Parents contribute time and energy in the classrooms and extra curricular activity. I guess it is the people that make it a really great school.

Our school has dedicated teachers that love teaching. The community wants our school to succeed and therefore works extremely hard to make that happen. The students are enthusiastic and want to be there. With all that how could it not be a wonderful place for my children.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
