    I believe the school does the best with what they have.... additional funding would help this school.

    My child attended this school and I cannot think of but a few good things to say about it. The teachers and staff (many of them not all) are among some of the most unprofessional people I have ever dealt with. I would do anything it took to keep my children out of this school. The 'test scores' at the end of each quarter seem to be the second most important thing. The children are being shortchanged in many ways. Someone of really needs to check out the inner workings of this 'learning institution'. My child is lucky not to be there anymore!

    Why are there so many field trips? And why is there so much homework? My Child is only in second grade and already I am tired last year they had three field trips before thanks giving they had a book fair a science day some sort of school-in-the-woods day and sent home at least 2 hours of home work a night. This year is starting out to be no different! Why don't they do what they are supposed to and TEACH my child reading writing and arithmatic; and let me take the kids to the zoo?

    This is a good school with some of the lastest technology in the area. However the staff is more concerned with test scores than teaching.
