    Lack of openness and communication with parents is atrocious. All of the teachers seem to have to filter everything through the principal. Parent/Teacher conferences tend to be Parent/Principal conferences where the teachers just sit there and let the principal take all of the questions about what is going on in their classrooms. If you want to be involved in your child's education look elsewhere.

    I am relocating to the area and I am already excited about this school. My 6th grade daughter is not so sure about it. I look forward to meeting her new classmates as well as their families. Please if you have any advice to share please do not hesitate to let me know. Thank you kindly.

    The school is parent friendly. This school is a 5 A school because of the teachers parents and students hard work. They all love their school. Everyone works together for the need of the students. This what makes this school a friendly school...

    Both of my sons attend Agricola; and I have been very pleased with the high quality of education they receive as well as with the atmosphere of the school. The teachers are caring experienced and qualified - many have a Masters Degree and/or are National Board Certified; and they work together to meet the individual needs of each child. Ms. Lawrence (the principal) is acquainted with each student and many of the families and has a very hands-on approach to running her school. The best interests of her students drive her decisions. She can be tough but she has high expectations from her staff and students and supports and encourages them daily. This school does not have a lot of the discipline problems that many schools these days have. It is a positive safe place for children to thrive and excell academically and personally.
