Combined my 2 kids have spent 7 years at this school. I have spent many hours volunteering and observing this school. I have been happy with almost every teacher that they had. The administration team is very experienced and caring; but direct and loud in a NY-style way.....and it works. This school
... Read more is very serious about academics and the majority of the parents support the school (by getting homework done, kids to school on-time, etc). The kids have before-school work they do in the hallways. Some kids have work they do after-school. There are plenty of activities like Movie Night and Batty for Bingo to meet other kids and parents. The gifted program is fantastic. I have also had a great experience with the reading coaches when one of my kids struggled to read at grade level. The school does the most they can with the resources the county provides. My main wish for this school would be that the county give more $$ for support staff (reading/math coaches/aides) to support the teachers. Read less

I went to this school from kindergarten through 5th grade. It was the best elementary school there is around, I know this because I am having a hard time finding even a decent school for my kids to go to. Your kid should be so lucky to be attending such a good school. Appreciate it!

This school gives you the runaround when you have a child with a disability that needs accommodations. I had to go to the district to get anything done. Now we have a section 504 but each step of the way they need a doctor's note which cost me $25 a piece. They didn't believe my letter stating side effects,

My son goes to this school. Last year we had an incident wherein one kid put an open siccors into my son's throat and was not satisfied with the way everyone handled the situacion, even the police department. Some of the teachers are arrogant and some are pleasant. My son is a 5th grader and his teacher
... Read more Mrs Mahler is wonderful compare to his 2nd and 3rd grade teacher. I personally disliked their attitude and lack of love and care for the students. I am constantly involved in my child's education and worked hard side by side with my kid so he can keep high grades despite of one teacher telling me that I should not spent too much time tutoring my child. I was dissapointed to hear this from a teacher. Read less

My daughter went to Kindergarten there....one day she came home and said she had a new teacher...I was not happy that they changed her class without informing the parents first (they cut a K teacher to adhere to the classroom ratio..and moved her to another grade level.) Her new teacher was AMAZING,
... Read more and she had a great first year of school. The staff are all AWESOME there, but I am not happy with the quality of students there. My daughter got slapped across the face in aftercare by a much older child...then again she got hit by a kid who wanted to be the line leader?the last week of school a 5th grader stole her lunch, but it was caught on camera and was properly handled. I was heartbroken to hear that my daughter was crying her eyes out and without lunch..when the teacher saw her crying, she shared HER OWN lunch with her. I volunteered there weekly and saw fights in the cafeteria. the school lunches were ice cold...until I complained to the school board.the school IS a uniformed school but it is NOT enforced..so I would say 20% of the kids wear them... so what's the point??? There is much more I can say... but I am out of characters.. we are not going back next year....:( Read less
