    Class size is too large 24 students in a class Too many students for one teacher to be able to be effective with. Having had 2 other chldren who went here am very disappointed with what I see.

  • (5 years ago)

    The teachers and staff are amazing.

  • (5 years ago)

    It is very organized and supervised even at the end of the school day. My grandson's teacher is a true educator taking time to help a child in adjusting to his first weeks of school. classroom.

  • (7 years ago)

    Its an okay school. I think parents are involved a little too much and some parents are to connected with their children. There is to much drama between students which cause drama between parents.

  • (7 years ago)

    Very happy with the amount of knowledge my children have for the grade that they are in. They definitely know more now at the grade they are in than what it used to be many years ago.
