    My daughter has been going to this school for two years. I loved her Kindergarden teacher! She was very easy to talk to will answered your emails or phone calls in a timely manner. Her 1st grade teacher is quite the opposite. I love the school because there are other teachers that are really helpful. It also helps that my daughter like to go to school. But base on this year teacher performance I will drop the rating.

    The previous administrator was fantastic family friendly academically driven student centered and welcoming. The new Principal has altered the environment in a negative fashion. The school has a very negative feel to it. Staff appears to have low moral. The Principal does not appear to be welcoming concerning nor an academic leader. Wow what a change!
