    I love this school! I love the entire staff. There are so many children that move through that school year after year and yet the staff still knows the names of all the kids. This school is definitely a safe environment for me to leave my children in. My children love this school and have always loved each of their teachers. Awesome School!!!

    I could not disagree more I have been very impressed with the teachers and the school overall. I think some of the special needs programs are a bit stretched but effective. So far I am very impressed with the teachers my son has had.

    Poorly addresses students with disabilities. Principal fails to return phone calls. Teachers are hit and miss some are great some are awful. you can't judge a school by test scores alone this one fails to care about it's students

    school overall is outstanding--am concerned with several of the extra curriculars that the children participate while not engaged in class work. Card trading has become a large issue and cannot seem to find a reasonable solution. Also some corrective actions were taken regarding my child during school hours which I feel should have been notified. If I would have been notified the corrective action wouldn't have been necessary with all of the facts revealed. Some discipline strategies seem a bit archaic. Some daily interactions with students appear to be inappropriate. These are your students not your buddies. Some unnecessary bullying and name calling is also occuring with teachers blowing off the fact that it's even happening. Academically I'm satisfied. Overall student and teacher behavior I'm disappointed
