    Very strong leadership in the principal and staff. There are a lot of activities for the children to participant and in which to grow. Each team's teachers create their own team's style which has its good and bad point. Parents of students on different teams cannot 'compare notes'. The students are well orientated to their new school environment and are given more independence as the year progresses. I feel confident that both academically and socially my child will be ready for the transition into middle school.
