Average. There is much room for improvement. The kids and families are great, the teachers are kind but improvements are needed in academics and the facility. They need a cafeteria and a true look at nutrition. They really do not offer after school activities and the STEM after school they do offer is too small and many kids do not get the classes they want, so be prepared to drive them around to the private activities around town. Good news is there are many great choices. If you work long hours you need a nanny to drive them or you are out of luck.

Our daughter is in second grade and our son will attend next year. We love this school and feel are children will receive a tremendous education here.

great school and administration as well as parent teacher organization, facilities could use an upgrade though

The teachers are anywhere from outstanding to checking for a pulse. The principal in my opinion is unprofessional and does not know how to handle difficult situations adequately. Her attitude leaves a lot to be desired. The PTO is wonderful

The teachers are subpar. They would not be able to teach in other states where the education requirements are stricter. They seem to be on auto-pilot and cannot adjust the new set of students and personalities. he principle seems unable to handle the school of this size. The PTO is great.
