This is the the first year of both my children here. One is 3 and in pre-k, the other is in 1st. My son started 1st not being able to read. He never attended kindergarten and I was unsuccessful in my attempts. Within 6 weeks, he was reading small books and within 2 months, he was writing me notes. He has really taken off and loves his teacher Mrs. McCauley. He was placed into the gifted class because of his talent in Art. He was later placed into the after school Art program for 5th-8th graders. He is doing excellent in school. My daughter in pre-k, she will probably be reading before kindergarten. They have taught her all her letters and sounds. And can count to 25 already. Security is always around and monitors the children even during dismissal of after school. I really feel the staff take an interest in my kids well being. I love this school. I rated the principal a 3 as I have not met her and cannot say.
