I think this school is just fantastic! The teachers and principals here are simply wonderful and caring, and are very involved in this school. It's very warm and welcoming to students and parents as well. I'm very fortunate to send my children to such a great school!

While this school does an excellent job teaching the gifted & talented and providing additional assistance to those students 'on the bubble' (a combined total of approximately 85% of its student population), it grossly fails to appropriately educate those students who do not 'fit inside this box. Downfalls: ...  Read more

While this school has an 'exemplary' rating, I would disagree when it comes to children with special needs. This is a great school for the 'gifted and talented' child, not one that requires assistance with disabilities.

Hi, My kids have been in this school for 5 years and I can say, this is the best school. PTA involvement is excellent and yes, they tell you not to walk to the kids class after the first week just to keep the school safe. The teachers go out of their way to help the kids learn. They work according ...  Read more

Before 2008-2009 year, parents were not allowed because there were too many students in the school. Now since that the school zone was reassigned, more than 100 students had been transferred to Matthews Elementary. Starting from 2008-2009 school year, the parents are welcome to each luch with their kids ...  Read more

The parent involvement at this school is pretty high. This is only good from a student welfare point of view. Dedicated parents are thrilled. Others complain. To address some of the other reviewer's concerns, I agree with the school policy. I do not want any adult to be wandering down the hall ...  Read more

The parent's are not allowed in the classroom and can't walk their child to class past the 1st week at all. There's no way to know what's going on in the classroom, both with learning and student to student interaction, except by your child's stories. The teachers are excellent, but it's highly competitive.
