Overall a stimulating learning environment within a supportive community. The music program has greatly improved this past yr. The new music teacher has been developing what was a lackluster program is very engaged and teaches discipline appreciation and builds enthusiasm. Would like to see technology better integrated in the programs. Many exceptional teachers though not all are.

Excellent teachers and a strong commitment to quality education for kids of all ages and abilities. Would like to see more challenging academics but overall its a great school. Brand new playground and solid arts programs. Could use a bit more after school offerings.
