    I have a son that goes to McNinch and a daughter that goes to Central. They are wonderful schools and the staff is great.

    Principal doesn't care about students only test scores. The new split is absurd. Pre-k through 2nd grade only. 3 4 5 grades sent to other schools. Do your kids a favor and send them to Washington Lands instead(still P-K through 5). I did and my kids are doing so much better and they actually enjoy school again.
