Excellent school! Teachers and staff are great. My daughter came from overseas with no English. I was impressed with the staff on how caring they were to make her feel very comfortable, guiding me through the paperwork, and registering her in no time.

This is a really great school, perfect communications and highly qualified teachers. The teachers follow up on the kids progress and help the improvement.

The school is well run and most teachers seem to genuinely care about their students. My only complaint is at lunch time.

This is the best school I have ever went to! I am now going to 5th grade and have been here since 1st grade. Staff is caring, food is great, and they have many extracurricular activities! Field trips are free.

Excellent school! Teacher's are very caring and sensitive to children's need. Administrator's are very involved, caring and willing to help when asked. We had a situation that they had to get involved in and they solved it to our families satisfaction.

I think overall it is a great school for academics. Most of the teachers appear caring and competent. I do wish more solicitation for volunteers would be pursued. It appears that the pta board is mostly caucasion women and a few appear to have been on the board since initiation. Thus limiting fresh ...  Read more

Uncaring and insensitive to students needs. I feel also that some of the teachers don t have patients that is needed to be an elementary school teacher. When dealing with kindergarten thru 3rd grade patients is definitely needed. My experience dealing with birks staff hasn t been a very good one.
