    it's small but has great staff and teachers but they could work on the sport arts music areas alittle and they should add a pool because we would save time and money becasue we have to drive to the other school and the lockers could be bigger so we wouldn't have to get all the little thing stuck in there and so we would have to do so much clean outs but besides all that it is a great place to learn and play and have fun!!!

    I love the size of the school and the fact it is K-8. Academic curriculum and instruction could move to a higher level to provide more rigor and a relevance to life. An overall majority of the staff are friendly and good with students. Extracurricular activities are available and provided with some good coaches/instructors but there are also some very poor ones.
