    This is a good school if your child is average. If you have an exceptionally bright child or a child with any learning difficulty good luck! This is the least compassionate group of people I have ever seen and I have lived in many places.

    This El school realy knows how to teach with fun hands on lessons. I know my child will be safe when their is a tornado or a fire.

    While there are some great teachers who love our children there is some internal politics in the school that is damaging to our children's overall education. I have found the communication with parents to be poor. I strongly feel that the programs are more important than the individual achievement of our kids. There is a determination to not allow the kids' education get in the way of being the model for expeditionary learning. I would hesitate before putting kids in this school.
