    We love this school. The teachers are great--very warm caring bright flexible creative hard-working. Lots of individual attention and emails home if something is not going well. An anti-bullying culture of sweet kids. A principal who was voted best principal in western NC last year. Our son is finishing 3rd grade and we have had very good teachers each year. He is a minimalist with respect to homework (does what he has to to get by); yet he has done very well on state standardized tests. The campus is pretty and wooded. Parents can be as involved as they want to be. There is always a good group of parents in PTA.

    Great class sizes and wonderful teachers. The new principal (Marcia Perry) even arranged for the students to get free or for donation year books last year!
