Community ratings & reviews

  • (3 years ago)

    The teachers and staff are very vested in the children. Communication is excellent. Principal appears to be on top of everything.

  • (8 years ago)

    Overall significant improvement within the past 5 months. Could still benefit in areas of communication and technological advancement-emails to parents.

  • (12 years ago)

    Goff tries to get the parents and children involved in different school activities. The teachers often volunteer their time to tutor or chaperone the activities after school.
