Community Rating & Reviews

    The principal and staff are very good eith the children and they really care about them. My daughter has been there since last Jan and she has had 2 very good teachers (last year and this year) I would recommend

    My son is in Kindergarden and I find the school work to be at his level. Perhaps more sports activity maybe needed. I still find the school staff to be unorganized as far as proper notice on issues to parents.

    The quality of programs is fair. Although their only music teacher is very involved with his students I believe that the school needs more resources to improve music curriculum. The school also offers boy/girl scouts which is a great opportunity for students to learn community leadership. However parent involvement is very scarce. Parent/teacher collaboration needs much more improvement for the very few of us who are involved.
