    Fantastic school. My son's 1st Grade teacher made sure to test him and challenge him at his level which is all a parent wants. Principal was very involved and counselors were helpful when my son was having some anxiety in the beginning of the year.

    Best elementary school in town in my opinion. Feel very lucky to have sent my kids there. Excellent faculty great PTO very involved parents. Plus with the changes they have made to the curriculum this year an even better education than before.

    Great school. Not a big school but makes the kids feel more at home. The teachers and principal are very involved with the kids activities.

    Our son is entering second grade.He loves school.That itself shows that the teachers of this school are caring & make the kids feel safe away from home. Our son has become more social.He loves to talk write & read. I think they are doing a good job.
