For the most part, this school is excellent. My son's behavior since switching to this school from his last one has improved exponentially.

Every one here from the principal to the teachers is very involved in everything that goes on. The PTA is also great ...  Read more

I have been impressed with each teacher we have come in contact with and how they have made the curriculum reach all students without resorting to a scattered method. ...  Read more

I was very hopeful that this was a great school when I first learned of it. The teacher my son has is absolutely awesome. She cares and works with him and us. The principle is great. He is understanding and I think is doing a great job. Not being from this state I definitely can tell that Washington ...  Read more
