I have had my 5 children in school district almost their whole childhood. Grant it there have been a few teachers in the past that did not adapt to the times and seemed to have been waiting for tenure.

This school is a joke! The Staff is rude and clueless. They have no after school activities nor do they have any sports. They keep switching principals every year! The staff is always loosing paper work and then blaming the kid. I do not recommend this school nor the school district its in.

Teachers are very rude. Many kids struggle with what they've been taught and never have been given any extra help. No fun activities. School contains many bad children, many students feel left out.

Teachers are rude, students are ay behind on their learning. My daughter transfered and we discovered that this school is disappointing on so many levels. We wish we never moved to this district.

This is a great school. The Principal has made significant improvements in the sense of community and the teaching. They really seem to care about each student individually and offer fun family events, a cool cafe for special lunches, and more.

I am not very happy with my son's school since the principal was changed about 2 years ago. I feel there is very little communication given to parents. I'm not sure of the reason. I just know my son was not doing well in a few areas and there was no progress report or phone call home. I have been available ...  Read more
