    Very supportive teachers and staff. Great curriculum.

    This school is just okay. Children are not well supervised by teachers. Lunches are often spent in classrooms with no teacher supervision. Also the halls are overtaken by unsupervised running children at lunch and before and after school. Teachers are too concerned about making sure the students like them and fail to correct bad behaviors. The pick up and drop off procedures are ridiculous. You cannot park in the school parking lot to drop off or pick up your child. School dismisses at 3 30 pm and parents start lining up in the car pool line at 2 30!!! This is true! They expect children to wait in sometimes freezing temperatures for 20+ minutes until their parents car finally gets to the front of the line. I am not impressed. School officials do what is easy for them without thinking of what is best for the children.

    The school is amazing and the teachers will take time to help with your personal problems after school if that stupid law doesn't pass making it so teachers won't be able to but they will find a way
