    This is one of the best elementary schools. Teachers are very dedicated and will find a way to teach your child.

    This school is awesome. The teachers in grades K-3 are especially caring and helpful to the children with just enough push to get them to work on their own. The 5th and 6th grade team of teachers also works together well to give the children the well-rounded education they need for middle school. The principal is truly outstanding and is very attentive to everyone's concerns.

    This school is amazing. It's hard to imagine a school that has everything you could want but this one does. The principal teachers staff parents and even bus drivers are incredibly caring and involved in all aspects! The facility has everything a teacher/principal could want. The school works with gifted challenged and typical students very well. Students are typically strong academically (most come from homes that hold education in the highest regard) but there is not a push at school. The teachers want the children to enjoy learning first and foremost. The only thing this school doesn't have is a non-traditional montessori-type classroom choice but the teachers certainly keep up with new trends/ideas in teaching using a variety of methods and activities. I can't imagine ever having to move my children from this school. I can't see many schools measuring up anywhere in the

    Awesome school! Teachers care more than most. A new principal in 2006 is fabulous. Parents teachers AND kids love her. Deals with all three on a professional and caring level atypical of most administrators. Excellent intervention for challenged kids. Parents are highly involved and there's a unique sense of community here where we all work and play together.

    academics are great music art and phys ed great gifted programs need a little improvement because it is hard for transfer/new students to get into the classes due to little space.
