If you want to learn, you'll learn a lot. If you want to float along, you'll get through. Most of the teachers are really great, but that's about where it ends. Administration actually seems to get in the way more often than it helps, though that was with the old principal. Hopefully the new one is better.

Although there are many needed improvements your child is assured an unforgettable experience -- the closeknit community within the school makes for lifelong friendships.
