    I went to this school from kinder on up & now my son is in first grade at this school. It has changed a lot over the years. I think this school is a good school but I am not a fan of the principal. I tried many times to set up an appt to talk to her about my son (he is gifted) she never once met with us & always had the vice principal see us instead. They were very impatient & did not listen to my concerns. I felt very blown off. I have been very lucky in the teachers that my son had in kinder & now 1st. They are wonderful & help alot with keeping my son above & beyond the average reading levels of first graders.
