High achieving school. But parents need to be involved. Sometimes the instructions given in class are not clear. But I like the racial mix. Many international students.

I attended the early grades at this school, through second grade. I had a fantastic start to reading with an excellent phonics program, which helped me to become a great speller. This was a very enjoyable way to learn about how letters and sounds work together, which of course, provides a good start. ...  Read more
