Community ratings & reviews

    The school appears to takes great pride in its apparent goal of achieving mediocrity and minimal standards.

  • (4 years ago)

    Frustrated with the school. The curriculum is not challenging enough (or the teachers are unwilling to adapt to a higher level) for high performing students. Lots of busy work and very little if any assigned homework. Considering moving to another school district which challenges the students more and is more responsive to parental concerns. Being told to wait until high school for more challenging curriculum when your child is in 5th grade is absurd.

    School is really growing. I think it is a little overcrowded.
