    They need to allow more parent involvement. Have a more open door policy so parents can come in and help or volunteer in the classrooms. They need to make sure ALL students have text books so when homework is assigned they can bring a book home.

    I love this school because it is so small and everyone knows each other. I would never want to go to another school.

    This school deserves a lot of respect because unlike most schools opportunities are given to all students and not just 'the pets'. And they are doing an excellent job in singling out kids to give them a better learning experiance.Plus most if not all students feel like they're in a safe enviroment.Excellant job staff and faculty
