We've been here for three years after moving back from overseas, G1-4, and my daughter is a very well behaved, high-academic achiever. She and we have had a tremendous experience. The kids are kind and well behaved, despite not having super high test scores on average (we're a 5 not a 10) and there are a lot of super smart kids to balance out those less academically talented. Teachers are very energetic and involved, extremely professional and responsive. The current principal is a start, working constantly to support teachers and keeping them on top of curriculum changes, she makes a HUGE difference to teacher effectiveness, leadership makes a bigger difference in ES than HS. Don't be fooled by 5 rating, due to range of academic performers, this is a very strong school and a positive educational environment.
