Our son went there for kindergarden and part of 1st grade. We moved to a different part of the state. At his new school (also public) he was already 1 year behind the other students and we had to have him repeat kindergarden. Many of the students were dumped there by parents that couldn't even bother to dress or feed thier kids. The kindergarden teacher could not control the kids and very little learning went on.

The staff at this school are wonderful people and do generally care about their students. The PTO is well organized and welcoming. This really is a great school!
Field Trips are minimal as are extracurricular activities. The computer equipment is outdated and not very well maintained. My second grader's teacher was not very good with parent/teacher interaction.
