Also I'm not sure about the discipline situation, as several of my child's ...  Read more

Are we really proud of these test scores? I think not! The test scores should tell you about how this school is. I think 5/10 is giving them too much. Id say 3/10. This is a disgrace to our education system

Both my girls have thrived in the creative and supportive environment. As a dad I am so relieved to find a school that accepts and promotes individuality. It has given my children a true sense of self and acceptance.

It not only is an extension to our family, but the magnet program is excellent. My child has thrived since Kindergarten. The teachers and staff care about your child. The education is the best you can get. My child loves his 'specials' and his 'electives'. This has allowed him to learn so much more. ...  Read more
