We wish the principal would be more active with the kids. She is always in the main office instead of being outside greeting kids and parents.

This school is A rated for different needs other than that of the student. Why has it ranked so high? Maybe because they consider other factors more important. I had two daughters that attended this school and I pulled them out quickly. First of all, her 1st grade teacher was straight out of college ...  Read more
