    9 Webster Elementary School

    We moved to the area specifically for this school and have been very satisfied. Only caution is the middle school is starkly different and does not have the same opportunities for advanced learners.

    7 Valerius Elementary School

    This school is overrated. Staff is nice and friendly, but I'm not ok with the curriculum, I feel it's been dumbed down. There is a certain lack of professionalism in some staff. It's just ok at best.

    8 Summit Middle School

    this school is awesome if you fit in. If you have a learning disability or special needs be prepared for a long battle. Bullying is out of control and the schools thinks it doent have a problem
