My two children went here--so I have been involved with this school for many years. Agree with previous review--The principal is a very nice person same with secretary. They got to know my kids as individuals--excellent! The atmosphere is welcoming. Kids who test high on IQs get into GATE program which a much more fun project-based curriculum that all kids should be getting. District leadership is very big on standardized-test results (despite lip service to the contrary) so the teachers and principal at this school are hamstrung by a curriculum that is often way too heavy on test-prep. I know teachers hate it and think it hurts kids love of learning. Dual Immersion (DI) curriculum is offered (Spanish and English)--one of the programs the district is justifiably most proud of. Parents have also been asking for foreign language for kids in the regular curriculum (i.e. non-DI) but district leadership has resisted this for years--too bad. "Leader in Me" is a joke--an expensive pet project of district leadership. All in all a good school.
