    I beleive this school is one of the best. I have two daughters and one of them went through this chool and she did wonderful. My other daughter is goin onto second grade and she is also doing wonderful. The teachers are great nd th eprincipal Mr. Nagel is a wonderful person. I belive that you as a parent have to get involved and help out whenever peossible to help your child do better in school.

    In this school your child will work hard. After 3 years I have found it all depends on the Teacher. There are many who are creative and love children who think outside of the box. A few who just want the children to sit there and listen and do paperwork all day. A few who could use a refresher on positive discipline techniques. They seem to care however washing hands and bathroom brakes are an inconvenience to most staff because there is not enough time. If your child has recess before lunch he/she will not wash hands before eating. There is hand sanitizer on the wall however it is not always used. The children on the bus are sometimes aggressive therefore some parents chose to drive their children to and from school.
