This is an amazing school! It is like a private school among the public schools in every way! Learning is always exciting and "right on" to meet the needs of each student. The teachers are truly amazing and dedicated, and the whole community comes together to support our school.

This is an excellent public school which functions as a private school. I would highly recommend this community rich school. Parents are asked to become a part of their child's education in many instances. Some parents would rather not invest their time in their children and those kids suffer. All ...  Read more

The academic program is very very good and the children seem to be able to keep up with the high expectation. It is very competitive even at the lower grades. The extracurricular programs seem limited. The parent involvement is high.
