Despite living only a block away, we pulled our two youngest kids out of this school due to the behavior of teachers and administration.

I have 2 young kids in the school and I am there every day. And I see that Heather Swanson, Catharine Blaine's principal is in the hall way EVERY morning and EVERY afternoon. She knows many of her students names and she also knows many parents. She responds to parents emails and she is creative in finding ...  Read more

This school has the potential to be a great school, but sadly falls short. Many of the teachers are good but they operate on their own.

We have two children at this school. Many, many good things to say about this school. Love the new principal who previously was the assistant principal. Strong academics, arts and extracurricular offerings.

I have been involved at this school for the past 7 years with more than one child. We have had some ups and downs, but nothing bad enough where a little work and communication couldn't set things right. The quality of teachers are top notch, they care deeply about the academic needs of all the ...  Read more
