This school has great teachers. But every since the new principal Shelly Hughes came, it has really gone downhill.

Very sad, ...  Read more

Excellent school. One of the best school here in Elk Grove district. My daughter really likes going to school. I have seen her improve a lot with reading and math. She is in First Grade. I say this school is better than private school.

This is the best school overall that we have attended. Great teacher/parent communication! My ADHD son has been treated wonderfully...all the teachers he has had work with him and have helped him to build a better self image (unmedicated)! The higher rent for the surrounding area is worth its money!
