The teachers are OK but some of the higher paid administrators (exception being the school psychologist) and those hired to be curriculum leaders are a waste of time. Put more teachers into the classrooms, stop letting 5th graders wander off the farm and do their own research with little or no guidance ...  Read more

The staff is caring and responsive. The quality of teaching is high and the opprotunities offered to children are diverse. As a parent, I couldn't ask for more and am thrilled that our children are going to such a fine institution. Parent involvement is the highest I have seen anywhere.

The teachers are hardworking, dynamic and effective and the school is excellent. It is one of the best schools in the district. The Principal is experienced and caring and hires terrific educators to carry out his mission of excellence.

This school may look fancy, but the overall quality of the staff is mediocre. The principal is somehwat of a buearocrat who's been in the system a long time but does not stick his neck out nor encourage academic excellence. Although he and the staff may like to take credit for CMT's, etc. if you put ...  Read more
