Community Rating & Reviews

    Best public school in the area.

    I am very pleased with my child's progress. The principal has energized the students even though parental involvement is still poor. The Home and School Association could improve the communication with parents and hopefully that will encourage more parents to participate. Also by offering workshops to help the school community with home issues may be a way of engaging the adults.

    The academic programs are above average. My children do have homework every night (except weekends). There is art music classes for the children. I find that if the parents initiate the involvement the school reacts appropriately.
