I am very disappointed with this school. My child's Kindergarten teacher was fantastic, but in 1st grade my child has been all but ignored. My child is not learning there.

This is a wonderful school. It is the best in the district. It has the best test scores. It is a fairly small school with class size reduction in k-3 grades. The school had huge improvements made a few years ago with modernization of classroom and restroom. I wonder where the person who said the ...  Read more

I have seen both good and bad experiences with students at this school. My daughter is going on to 1st grade and I believe this school has a wonderful Kindergarten program. It is more successful when the parents become extremely involved in their children's school work and class activities. My succeeded ...  Read more
