Principal very hard to deal with. After 1 year there I pulled both my children out and went to a loving, friendly, supportive school down the street. If you child needs any special help, you will find no support here. I really tried my best to be involved and helpful but to no avail.

Best elementary school in area. Motivated and caring teachers. Constantly striving for excellence. Strong PTO. Good communication. If you are relocating to this area this school is your best bet. Small class size. Feels like a private school.
