    The Administration is very attentive and interacts wonderfully with the Students. Most of the teachers are terrific well skilled and care about their students. Parents are highly involved and contribute significantly to the learning experience. District officials are wonderful and caring people however under the grips of the teacher's union are unable to control the vast majority of the budget and are constantly on the brink of financial disaster.
