    I really liked this school when my children attended. They have some really dedicated teachers and principal.

    We recently moved out of state but I had a kindergarten and 1st grader here last year and a kindergartener the previous year. I loved this school. Like with any school if you involve yourself with your kids they will do well and mine did great. The activities for family(movie day and dance night etc.) were a lot of fun and my Kindergarten teacher for my girls 2 years in a row was amazing. She genuinely seemed to like the kids and was a very down to earth person. They still want to know when they can go back. There new school I was sadly disappointed in. My kids were so far ahead of where we are now(Fairfax county VA) that it boggled me at first. They learned what they were supposed to and enjoyed going to the school itself. If parents keep up with their kids they do great.

    My son was an honor roll student at his last schools. When he started going to A.B wilkins his grade went down a lot. The teachers dont explain home work. They yell at the students and they dont seem like they care at all. My son will not be going he next year.
