What stand out for this school is the prime time. Ms. Trei is wonderful, and her yourng team works very hard. The kids never get board because there are so many activities after school (in prime time). Teachers are great too. I am not sure why this school rated so low.

My child's teacher (Ms. Fox) did a great job (Kindergarten). My child learned so much during this year, it is amazing! The teachers are great, easy to communicate, however I'm disappointed with the Principle not trying to solve basic problems, like parking, or there is no crosswalk of front of the school, ...  Read more

The teachers are outstanding ,doing thier best in a district thats been hammered by budget cuts.My daughter loves going to school everyday and she loves it because the teachers care.

The sense of community that the school creates and expresses through its attention to the arts and understanding of cultural and social diversity is inspiring to me as a humane educator and community arts graduate student.

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