The teachers are exceptional. As others noted there aren't enough male teachers though. Only one class teacher is male. The leadership on the other hand is lacking. They failed to implement security measures in a timely manner. Although sign in is mandatory for visitors nobody is actually checking up on that and people can just walk into the school unnoticed. Not cool! Also the secretary is grumpy most of the time. A smile for a parent might go a long way! The PTO did a great job this year raising funds for all activities and computers (which should be paid by the district not by the parents btw) and organizing fun events. The after school care program is great and my kids love it there. The staff is amazing and they have about 50% male teachers.
