Looks like a newer construction with a great office staff and engaging programs, the teachers seem to have great programs for the children. 1st day but I really enjoyed meeting everyone and listening in on classes.

This school is focused on all of the wrong things. The staff and the entire school revolves around the students with the "behavioral issues". Many students are completely ignored unless they act out. There are children of parent volunteers whom rules do not apply. The principle is unreasonable and has ...  Read more

Can't say enough about this school! Loved it from 1st to 5th!

The school has been working hard to improve their scores. Looping is done in the first and second grade and it is very successful. They have a new principal which I think is a huge improvement over the last one. We needed more active parents to help our school grow and acheive more. There are many amazing ...  Read more
