    my child (2nd grade) is being manipulated by another child at this school and the teacher doesn't seem to realize it or chooses to ignore what's going on. I think I'll be removing my child from this school he's only learning bad language and inappropriate behavior here. the school has no student directory either so I cannot even reach out to other parents it's very discouraging.

    I am impressed by the caring and dedication of the staff. This is a small school where the staff knows everyones name.
