The school has gone through, and continues to go through, major changes - so much so that earlier evaluations are largely not applicable at this point in time. To understand this school, you need to go visit it. Fortunately, the current principal absolutely loves interacting with parents and community members, including showing them around the campus. The school has a major focus on STEAM: integrated science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. There are many new programs beginning, including robotics, aquaponics, and digital media. The attitude among the students is one of excitement, and the faculty's efforts to really inspire the kids is very obvious. The teachers are welcoming and will clearly explain anything and everything that goes on in their classes. Scores, from assessments and otherwise, have continued to rise.

Wonderful school. The principal is outstanding (enthusiastic, dedicated and approachable). My daughter's teacher is patient and intelligent. She is great about updating the parents via email and letters. The campus appears safe. The staff (particularly the principal and vice principal) are very visible, engaged and hands on throughout the day. We feel welcome here. I like the emphasis on STEM programs, environment, family and culture. We are very grateful to have this school in our community.

Principal doesn't seem to show any concern for how the children are being treated and who is around the property. Bums walks into the cafeteria looking at the food, trying to take some. They go into the bathrooms. My daugher was told by her teacher she had to go in a bucket in the closet because the doors were locked and she couldn't go to the bathroom. I don't know if she was joking or what. My daughter said she wasn't. Very scary who they let onto the property.

my daughter made the observation that her teacher was a lot nicer when other adults were around.
