Teachers who care enough and want to make a difference. My daughter is encouraged and made to feel special for her gifts. I love this!!!!! Thank you to all of those special teachers for making learning so much Fun!!!!

    This school is a real gem. The school is safe the students are happy and the teachers are even happier even on a rainy Monday morning. The principal is energetic capable and caring. Overall the teachers are extra attentive (no student 'slips through the cracks') and the enthusiasm in the school seems infectious. My son transferred there from a private school and made a smooth transition. There are many opportunities to volunteer in this school There are pretzel and bake sales a book fair and other events that require the orchestration of volunteers. The only negative comment I have about this school is the excessive amount of papers sent home via the student's backpack. These are the norm for public schools in the area and run the gamut of requests for donations volunteer opportunities field trip permission slips school worksheets etc. (a small price to pay for such a top-notch school).

    This school is absolutely amazing. My child is so far advanced. They really prepare the children for the future. The teachers really work with the kids alot. They won the blue ribbon 3-5 years in a row. My child is always telling this.

    I have a son who has attended this school since Kindergarten. I give this school a 10 out of 10! The teachers are excellent at teaching academics as well as social skills. They are very professional yet warm. There is a lot of parent involvement and so there is a nice community atmosphere. In short - its the best!
