    We love the teachers in this school. However there seems to be little communication between the school and the parents. When a new way of doing something is implemented the parents are not notified. Now when the district is facing a major budget deficit it seems that there will not be much left other than the core subjects. I give this school and district an average rating because I do not feel the district keeps the best interests of the students in mind.

    When we moved our main concern was finding a good school for our daughter. She was coming out of what was suppose to be one of the best school districts. We were so absolutly thrilled to find this school.It is the best school yet and our daughter is do better then she has ever done before. The teachers are wonderful and the school sends home such wonderful tips on how to help your children cope with different situations. I give this school a 10 out of 10!
