    As a kindergarten teacher I know what my daughter should be learning. She is learning everything a kindergartener should learn and more! She loves going to school and loves her teachers Mrs. Widman & Ms. Eaton. She has a lot of friends. I am proud that my daughter attends this Blue Ribbon school!

    This school is ok. The only thing I didn't like is there are a lot of kids that are a bunch of bullies who start trouble for no reason. Another thing is that my son was having lots of difficulties with his tests and school work because the teacher will teach different math material each day and when it comes for a test my son will fail. It confuses too many kids.Thank goodness I have someone that helps my son understand math and he will pass his tests. I don't understand how teachers will teach something difficult for a 2nd grader. My son was learning fractions division multiplication the median mode and mean in math. He just started learning how to add and subtract with big numbers. My son was having so much difficulties in those areas. I wish there was after school for 2nd graders so my son can actually understand more in his weakness areas. On the other hand my daughter is finally graduating from 5th grade with no difficulties. We are so proud of her.

    This school is crowded stuffy and old. The teachers are loud angry and stressed they really dont seem to care alot about the children. Maybe major Bloombery should remove all this teachers that are there just for the paycheck and not for the love of the profession.

    My daughter has learned so much at this school. It's smaller so there's a much better student/teacher ratio than other public schools in the area. Highly recommended! The principal knows each child by first name and treats them as if they are her own children.

    This was a nice little school when I was a student here.The administration knew all the students by name(which was nice ).Most of the teachers were really good.
